Eight people were injured on Friday after the wall of a mosque collapsed in Model Town due to heavy rain in the Punjab capital.

According to rescue officials, the incident occurred on Link Road in Model Town, which resulted in eight people being crushed under the rubble and consequently sustaining serious injuries.

The rescue team gave first aid to three of the injured at the site of the incident, while the remaining five were shifted to a nearby hospital for further medical treatment.

The city and its surroundings experienced intermittent rain last night which still continues, turning the weather pleasant after a month’s long spell of heat.

Moreover, the ongoing rain once again led to the tripping of over 100 feeders of the Lahore Electricity Supply Company (LESCO).
