Speeding cars accompanying Nawaz Sharif’s ‘homecoming’ motorcade crushed a nine-year-old child to death in Lalamusa on Friday.
According toIPP News, the child was among a crowd of supporters gathered to greet Nawaz Sharif as his motorcade passed through Lalamusa.
It seems that he strayed onto the road and was hit by one of the cars belonging to the Elite Force before multiple following cars ran over him without stopping.
According to eyewitnesses, the child succumbed to his injuries while the vehicles passed over him. While a mobile health unit was accompanying the deposed prime minister’s motorcade, bystanders said no car stopped to take stock of the child’s condition.
The child’s father lost consciousness, experiencing heart palpitations, after he saw his child’s body on the road.
Locals said that the father was shifted to a nearby hospital, where doctors fought to save his life.
As news of the boy’s death made national headlines, Nawaz Sharif’s daughter, Maryam Nawaz, took to Twitter to express grief over the incident and said that the local PML-N leadership had been asked to provide assistance to the grieved family.
