Earlier, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah admitted that the provincial government’s response to the Mehar tragedy was slow. He also admitted that the fire tender deployed near Mehar village was out of order which caused loss of life and property.

He said the Sindh government had formed the JIT to investigate the Mehar fire incident which claimed the lives of nine children and one woman.

CM Murad accompanied by Local Government Minister Syed Nasir Shah earlier this week visited the site of the incident and announced a relief package and investigation.
