After heavy rainfall in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, at least seven people were killed in an accident.

The accident occurred after an automobile fell into a drain, and the injured lay unexpectedly in the drain the entire night, reported The Nation.

"The deceased included three women and three girls. The bodies were shifted to a nearby hospital; all the deceased belonged to Bhara Kahu," a Police official informed.

This incident is another example of Pakistan's poor infrastructure. Such frequently occurring accidents showed that Prime Minister Imran Khan failed to achieve the results of his party's 2018 manifesto.

Last month, four Pakistan’s Frontier Corps personnel were killed and two soldiers injured in a bomb blast on Saturday. The blast targeted the vehicle in which they were traveling in the Harnai district of Balochistan province.

Later, the Baloch Liberation Army, which is banned in Pakistan, claimed responsibility for the attack that took place on Saturday, reported Dawn.

The Frontier Corps personnel were attacked with Improvised Explosive Device (IED), during patrolling duty in the Safar Bash area.

The officers who died in the blast were identified as Hussain Rehmat, Muhammad Saleem, Majid Fareed, and Zakir. The two who sustained injuries were Captain Owais and Lieutenant Luqman.

Previously, on Friday two security personnel were killed and five others were injured in an attack in Awaran district in Balochistan.
