Two friends died, while the third was injured when their car overturned due to over speeding near Karsaz on Sharae Faisal on the night between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Police and rescue workers shifted the car crash victims to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre where the deceased were identified as 20-year-old Furqan Haider and 25-year-old Basim Sheikh. The injured youth is undergoing treatment at the hospital.
Speaking to The Express Tribune at Jinnah Hospital, Furqan’s uncle Faheem said that Furqan was the only child of his parents and was studying at Iqra University in Defence View. He was a father to a son and lived in an apartment near Sea View in the Clifton area. Faheem added that Furqan’s friends had picked him up for a drive, but the family was left devastated when they heard of his death in the car crash.
On the other hand, Basim Sheikh’s heirs refused to talk. Police officials say the accident destroyed the car, and a lifter moved it to the police station. Further investigation of the incident has been started.
