The deadly road mishap that occurred on Wednesday morning has claimed 13 lives so far while more than 20 are reportedly injured.
Police have geared up the investigation into the matter after registering case against gas tanker’s driver and owner at Mananwala police station.
Earlier, a tanker carrying liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) rammed into a car and the gas leakage fuelled an inferno engulfing the vehicle and nearby buildings near Sheikhupura’s Mananwala.
Two other school rickshaws at the scene of accident also caught fire, injuring some schoolchildren also.
According to eyewitnesses, the accident occurred when the driver of the tanker lost control while overtaking a vehicle near a u-turn.
