Two die as monsoon rain lashes Karachi: Massive outages hit KESC network

Two people were killed and over two dozen injured on Tuesday evening when a strong rain-bearing monsoon weather system hit Karachi, witnesses and hospital sources said. The year's first monsoon showers also wreaked havoc on the Karachi Electric Supply Company's frail distribution network, which was already reeling after it collapsed following a light drizzle late Monday night.

A 30-year-old woman was killed when the wall of her house at Pahar Ganj collapsed. The body was brought to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where she was identified as Sakina.
