Karachi: At least 11 people died on Friday during a stampede at a factory in Pakistan's Karachi city, media reports said.

The people lost lives while seeking freebies.

The incident occurred while people were gathered at the factory in the city's industrial area to collect ration — which is part of charity drives that Karachhites hold every Ramadan to help the needy.

Those killed in the incident include eight women and three children, rescue sources and police officials told Geo News.
