Pakistan Observer - - KARACHI CITY - OUR RE­PORTER

KARACHI—Bod­ies of two young men, drowned in an open drain two days ago, were yet to be re­cov­ered by res­cuers, en­gaged hec­ti­cally since the last 48 hours. Res­i­dents said 18yer old Shi­raz fell into a tank and his cousin Wa­hab jumped in to wa­ter to save him. They are still miss­ing, feared dead.

The fa­ther of the ill-fated soul, Qadir Bakhsh com­plained that the Karachi Wa­ter Board had re­fused to stop wa­ter from be­hind to help in the res­cue work, say­ing the bod­ies will au­to­mat­i­cally sur­face af­ter some­time. Qadir Bakhsh had threat­ened to stage sit-in near Toll Plaza should his ap­peal go un­heeded.
