A MYSTREIOUS GAS LEAKAGE IN KARACHI
It was February 2020 when more than a dozen people lost their lives and 250 were under the critical condition. This occurred in the densely populated area of Karachi Kemari near Karachi port. Same type of incident again happened on 22 December 2020 resulting in 8 deaths and 20 fell unconscious. It is claimed to be the explosion of toxic gas but exact causes of deaths were not ascertained. But according to the report of Karachi University, it is suspected that soya bean dust may have caused the deaths which were being unloaded from the ships. Due to the political tension and rift between federal and provincial governments such severe issue is still unresolved and no one can predict to avoid another episode to occur in future.
