Court rejects PTI’s plea on heatstroke deaths
KARACHI (Web Desk) - A local court rejected a petition filed by PTI to seek registration of a case against Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah over deaths caused by the recent spell of sweltering heat in Karachi last week. The application was filed by PTI leader Imran Ismail.
More than 1250 people died in Karachi from heatstroke after the mercury soared to 45 degree Celsius, a record in three decades, private news channels reported.
PTI blamed the provincial government for failure to take appropriate measures to prevent the deaths and filed an application in the court.
Session judge Ahmed Suba heard the case and announced the case today.
