The incident was reported on Monday night when a car in the convoy of Kashmala Tariq, Federal Ombudsperson for Protection against Harassment of Women, hit a car on Srinagar Highway.

Kashmala Tariq: Islamabad Accident

Tariq has categorically denied all the accusations that her son was not involved in the accident. She says that both the cars were driven by drivers. Her son was in another car who rushed to check her when her car hit the Mehran car.

“The accident was a result of the negligence of the drivers of both vehicles but the media started a trial of my family,” Ms. Tariq added. “My son remained in the spot till 12 midnight,” she said.

“It was a terrible accident and I feel sadness in my heart for the children who lost their lives,” she said.

She said that she and her husband suffered injuries who were hospitalized afterward. “Justice will be served but please don’t unjustly drag anyone’s child” into the matter, she underscored, adding that neither her nor her family tried to escape the crash site. “In fact, we even called an ambulance ourselves,” she added.

“We were travelling in two vehicles. We left Lahore around 7pm yesterday and crossed the toll plaza at around 10:30pm. My husband and I were in the same vehicle.

“As we reached the Kashmir Highway, we experienced a sudden shock and push and got injured. The driver was unable to control the car. It was a terrible accident,” she stated.

According to the police, the incident was reported at the G-11 signal where a speeding Lexus broke the red light and hit the Mehran car in which five people were traveling.

The Mehran car rolled a couple of times in the air and fell on the opposite road where it hit another motorcycle. The Lexus itself hit a motorcycle before coming to a halt.

Soon after the incident, people surrounded the Fortuner and Lexus. The family of the Ombudsperson left in the Fortuner before police arrived.

Police had registered a case in response to a complaint lodged by an injured driver, Mujeeb-ur-Rehman. Police have attributed the accident to the negligence of the Lexus driver.
