Only Call Received by One Victim’s Family

Apparently Pak ministers and babus are more interested in telling us what to do than consoling their own. Only call received by the family of one of the victim of Samjhauta Express was from Indian Consulate. Apparently our much maligned MEA comes through, again, to help people in distress, as during Lebanon war. A neighbour of that family writes to Dawn:

According to him, his relatives are still with the charred bodies waiting to return to Pakistan.

Despite ringing the helplines and contacting the relevant offices, he says he has not received a single call in reply. The only call he received was from the Indian high commissioner’s office to condole the death of his relatives.[Dawn]
