Basant Death Toll – 11

March 2, 2007

Basant in Lahore

Five of those who died on Sunday were hit by stray bullets, including a six-year-school boy who was struck in the head near his home in the city’s Mazang area, Bano said.

He also said that a 16-year-old girl and a school boy, 12, died after their throats were slashed by metal kite strings in separate incidents.

Two people were electrocuted while they tried to recover kites tangled in overhead power cables.

A 13-year-old boy fell to his death from the roof of his home as he tried to catch a stray kite, and a 35-year-old woman fell off the roof of her home trying to stop her son from running after a stray kite.
