KARACHI: The body of a teenage boy was on Tuesday retrieved from the debris of the three-storey building in Malir that collapsed on Monday, increasing the death toll to four.
An official said following retrieval of the body of 18-year-old Jarri Abbas, the rescue operation was over since no one else was suspected to be under the rubble.
An official at the Malir City police station said that the city and town administrations were now busy removing the rubble from the site.
Meanwhile, the funeral prayers of all the four victims of the family — a couple and their two sons — were offered on the main road in Jafar-i-Tayyar Society. They were buried in Malir’s Ghazi Goth graveyard.
