KARACHI: Sindh Governor Imran Ismail on Tuesday said the investigative report about the PIA airbus A320 crash had yet to come and speculations about the tragedy should be set aside at this time.

He said when the report would come then reasons for the plane crash would be known whether there was some technical fault in the plane or any other issue.

The governor said Prime Minister Imran Khan had directed for taking care and providing the affected families with facilities.

He stated this while talking to media persons after enquiring about the health of injured persons of the plane crash at Burns Centre of the Civil Hospital Karachi.
