Road accidents on Indus Highway claim 8 lives
Road accidents on Indus Highway claim 8 lives: While calls for regulating traffic and broadening the Indus Highway’s section between Jamshoro and Sehwan continue to go unaddressed, separate road accidents on the highway claimed eight lives in past two days.
On Thursday, four persons riding a motorcycle were hit by a passenger coach and a truck, leaving three of them dead and one injured.
The incident took place near Jamshoro. All the deceased were children – eight-year-old Muhammad Asad Jamali and five-year-old Muhammad Anees Jamali, and local seminary student Abdul Khaliq Chandio, 12. The father of the first two boys, Muhammad Qasim Jamali, was driving the motorcycle and is injured.
According to Jamshoro SHO Hashim Brohi, the truck driver abandoned his vehicle and fled the scene. The police, however, arrested him and also seized the coach when it was stopped at the police check post at Khanote.
An FIR has not been lodged so far. The victims lived in a village near Jamshoro.
Earlier on Wednesday, two college students returning from their examination centre in the rural town of Sann were hit by a passenger coach on Indus Highway. Saad Rind and Talib Hussain Rind, both cousins, died on the spot. The coach driver was arrested but an FIR has yet to be registered.
Meanwhile, a car travelling from Sehwan to Karachi overturned on the same highway near Sann, leaving 25-year-old Abdul Qadir Gopang and 45-years-old Nasir Khan dead and another man injured.
In another accident, a car and dumper truck collided near Mehran University of Engineering and Technology on the Indus Highway. Five-year-old Abdul Wali was killed and four people were injured.
