Ocean Mall has sent Rs 50 Crore defamation notice to Aman’s parents, who got injured and lost his foot due to a “faulty” escalator.
On the 20th of March, a tragic incident occurred in Karachi’s private shopping mall – a three-year-old boy lost his foot after it got stuck in an elevator. The parents appeared on the media after the incident and raised their voices against the authorities. They have now received a notice for defaming the mall for Rs.50 crores.
In a clip that first began circulating online, the child’s mother narrated the tragedy that occurred with their child. They went to Ocean Mall so their child could play and have a good time in the playing area but left for ICU devastated. The parents allege that the escalator was faulty – the emergency stop button was not working, and neither did the security know how to stop the escalator. They had to pull out their child’s foot with force in the end.
The graphic photos of the child’s foot online show that the foot has been completely damaged, and the bones were exposed.
