Karachi (HRNW) The death toll in the Golimar building collapse has risen to 26. More bodies were pulled out from beneath the rubble.

Residents of the building are angry at the slow pace of the rescue operation and the fact that the builder hasn’t been arrested yet. They staged a protest against this.

Jamaat-e-Islami Amir Sirajul Haq has called on the president and prime minister to take notice and help the families.

The building collapsed on Thursday afternoon. Eleven deaths were reported that day but the death toll kept rising as more bodies were pulled out.

The latest victims have been identified as Sohail, Muhammad Ali, Tariq Ali and Aamir Ali. The fifth victim, a woman, has been sent to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for identification.

There are fears that another 30 to 40 people are still under the debris.
