As the death toll from deadly Kharipur accident rose to 60, police earlier today filed an FIR against the National Highway Authority.
The FIR was filed by Station House Officer Amir Yousaf Zai.
On November 11, a passenger bus – en route to Karachi from Swat – collided with a goods truck on Theri Bypass. Eyewitnesses and Edhi sources had said that the driver of the passenger bus had fallen asleep behind the wheel which led to the collision.
A day after the unfortunate accident, bodies were transported to Risalpur, Swat and Karachi through Edhi ambulances.
Edhi Foundation has arranged for coffins, transporting of the deceased and medical care free of charge.
Funeral prayers for five deceased from Karachi were also offered today. They all belonged to the same family.
