Oil tanker carrying 50,000 liters of fuel overturns near Nawabshah


KARACHI Oct 6 (TNS):  An oil tanker carrying 50,000 spirit fuel commuting on National Highway from Faisalabad to Karachi overturned near Qazi Ahmed area on Friday, informed local police officials.

Following the incident, the district and motorway police cordoned off the affected area and called for machinery, fire brigade, and rescue teams to undertake the rescue operation as reportedly the fuel spread in the area after the accident.

Police said that the authorities are putting their best efforts to ensure that any unforeseen incident like Ahemdpur Sharqiya is not repeated today.

The local authorities also informed that surprisingly the fire tenders not only reached the area late but also did not have required foam to take action in case of any possible incident.
