Three Girls Died and a Dozen Injured in a Concert at Lahore

January 10, 2012

Three girls died while a dozen were injured during a concert of Atif Aslam at Al-Hamra Cultural Complex after a stampede broke. The concert was arranged by Punjab college. Reports suggest that more people were accommodated at the venue than it’s maximum capacity.

There are several reports about why the stampede broke but we’re unsure of the actual story yet. One of the reports suggests that the stampede was caused by the fake news of a bomb blast. Everyone rushed out to save their lives injuring others while another report suggests that it was due to the miss-management of the organisers when the girls tried to rush backstage to meet Aslam.

One of the attendees of the concert told us that management man handled the rushing crowd which made the situation worse.

Story is developing right now and we’ll keep you posted here as we hear more.

Update 1: Atif Aslam paid his condolences in the following words

“Today’s incident has left me in a state of shock and dismay. I am deeply saddened by what transpired after mondays concert. My deepest condolences to the victims and their families for the terrible loss that they have suffered and I pray that Allah will help them through this ordeal.”
