House collapse renders six children orphans

Ujjain: In a tragic house collapse a couple died leaving six children behind as orphans. An old house collapsed due to incessant rains and killed Muhammad Sajid s/o Jamil (40) and his wife Nasreen Bi (38) at 2 a.m. All the six children were buried under the debris. Out of the six, two were referred to Indore hospital while the four others were admitted to the district hospital. What makes the tragedy more poignant is the fact that Sajid and Nasreen had been the guardians of the four children whose parents had expired earlier. While Sonu (11) and Najira (6) are the children of the deceased couple, Muskan (8), Alishah (7), Faizay and Nazneen (14) are the children of Nasreen's sister who had expired earlier.
