Due to an alleged gas leakage explosion on Sharifabad Kohat Road in Peshawar, three children tragically lost their lives when the house's roofs collapsed on Saturday.

Additionally, two individuals, including a woman, sustained injuries during the incident.

Rescue 1122 reported that the explosion occurred in Shehzad's house on Street No. 4, Dora Chowk, due to a suspected gas leakage cylinder. The resulting collapse of the house's roof trapped the parents and children under the debris.
