Nawaz announces to visit house of minor boy died after being hit motorcade


Gujranwala August 11 (TNS): Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced that he will visit house of the minor victim, died after being hit by vehicle of his motorcade, to offer condolences.

A minor boy was killed after being hit by an SUV accompanying the former Prime Minister’s motorcade in Gujrat on Friday.

“I am deeply saddened by this accident, which has deprived us of one of our best workers who had come to see us,” the former premier said. “Sadly, he is no more with us.”

On other hand, leaders Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz drew public condemnation over terming the death of a minor boy a “sacrifice” for the country.

Addressing party’s supporters moments after Hamid was run over by an Elite Force vehicle, Captain (retd) Safdar said, “Millions of people rendered sacrifices during Pakistan’s creation [too]”.

He added: “He was our child; if he joined [the rally] for Pakistan, [then] God bless him.”

The boy’s father reportedly suffered a heart attack after finding his son lying on the road. The nine-year-old was taken to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
