However, there’s a different kind of tragic death altogether, one which happens untimely and is unexpected: the death of people who overdose on various kinds of drugs, driving under the influence of alcohol or have careless vehicle collisions/accidents.
This tragic death of a man named Mian Usman (popularly known as BUNTY) took place on New Year’s night, when he was out driving at the speed of 170 (according to sources).
What could have been a night of fun and frolic turned out to be his untimely death, according to his friends. Family and friends shared status updates on their social media with the news of his untimely death, and people were devastated.

Ina lilahe wa inna ilaihe rajiun, may God bless the departed soul and rank him a high place in Jannat ul Firdous.
