The absolute disorder in the sale of the Pakistani Sindh government's subsidized flour to the people resulted in the death of a man, a father of seven, in Mirpurkhas district during a stampede. The death occurred near the Commissioner’s office, where two mini trucks, each carrying 200 sacks of flour, were selling 10 kg each at a rate of Rs 65 per kg, outside Gulistan-e-Baldia Park. The mini trucks sold. People had gathered around the vehicles in a disorganised way, pushing each other to grab the bag before the others.
