Six-storey building collapses in Karachi’s Old Haji Camp Timber Market


A six-storey dilapidated building located at the Old Haji Camp Timber Market in Karachi collapsed on Monday.
Reportedly, the tumbledown building that had 21 flats was already vacated on being informed by the concerned authorities. The residents were shifted to other places.
Earlier today, police had closed the road for traffic movement citing risks that the building could be collapsed anytime.
The footage available with the media shows that the front portion of the building owned by Timber Market President Salman Soomro had already bent from the front façade. No injuries have been reported so far.
On the other hand, the anti-encroachment force conducted a major operation against encroachments across Sindh, and recovered a 10-acre government-owned land at District West.
