As is customary, after the coffin was carried by people for 40 yards on shoulders, it was placed later in an ambulance, but the crowd was so huge that the vehicle could move only at snail’s pace. Mourners surrounding it covered the entire distance walking. Soyem will be held at Masjid Furqania in Liaquatabad Friday afternoon.
