12 killed in crush during free food handout

In Pakistan, 12 people were killed in a crowd trying to get Ramadan food.

People rushed to get cash and food outside of a Karachi factory on Friday.

During the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, business owners often give cash and food to their employees.

Police believe that the crush resulted in the deaths of nine women aged 40 to 80 and three children aged 10 to 15.


Following the charity event, eight people were arrested, including the factory manager.

Police claim that the giveaway was not reported to local authorities before it occurred.

Mughees Hashimi, a local police official, said that panicked crowds started to form and that some children and women fell into an open drain.

Residents claimed that a wall fell near the drain, injuring or killing many.

Dr Hafeez Bugti, a police spokesperson, said that the factory management had not opened the inside gate and that the narrow street meant that elderly women and children were being pushed by the people at their end.

“The stampede caused enormous pressure to increase and resulted in women and children becoming victims.”

Police fired tear gas on Saturday at people who gathered in Peshawar, northwestern Pakistan, to get free flour.

Pakistan’s Prime Minster Shahbaz Sharif created an initiative to distribute flour free of cost to low-income families in order to reduce the effects of record-breaking inflation during this holy month.

His coalition government is currently facing the worst economic crisis in the country, with rising inflation, rising food prices, and skyrocketing fuel bills. This is the result of years of political turmoil as well as the effects of Russia’s invasion.
