Former provincial minister and Pakistan Peoples Party MPA Rubina Qaimkhani’s 16-year-old son was killed in a road accident in Karachi on Friday.
Initial investigations suggest the teenager’s car overturned near Village Restaurant on Karachi’s Sea View Road due to overspeeding.
A person accompanying Hamza Qaimkhani was critically injured and is undergoing treatment.
Following the incident, police and rescue officials rushed to the site and shifted the two to a private hospital.
Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and Sindh Home Minister Suhail Anwar Sial visited Qaimkhani’s residence to offer condolences.
Furthermore, Sial has directed DIG Traffic Karachi to submit a report on the accident.
The 16-year-old’s funeral prayers will be held today in Hyderabad.
Qaimkhani was elected to the National Assembly as a PPP candidate on a seat reserved for women from Sindh in 2002. She was re-elected in 2008 and served as federal parliamentary secretary for human rights during her second tenure as MNA. She was elected to the Sindh Assembly as a candidate of PPP in 2013. In July 2013, she became a member of the Sindh cabinet and was made provincial minister.
