Pakistan Rangers

At least two Rangers officials were killed while two others sustained severe wounds in a road mishap in Islamabad on Thursday.

The incident took place when Rangers’ vehicle turned turtle at Motorway, killing two security men on the spot whereas the injured have been immediately shifted to Combined Military Hospital (CMH) for further medical treatment.

Deadly accidents are common on roads across Pakistan due to bad infrastructure and rampant disregard of traffic laws.

Over 9,000 road accidents are reported to the police every year, killing on average around 5,000 people, according to the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics.

The last 10 years data on traffic accidents present a horrific picture as average 15 people died every day in traffic accidents across the country. Sindh proved the deadliest in terms of average people killed in accidents, followed by Punjab, Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
