    • Does Careem ensures life insurance or any support or they just issue condolence statements ?

      What happens after such terrible incidents take place? Does police ensures murderers are brought to justice?

  • This city has become a Jungle with animals roaming freely on the streets disguised in human skin. Extremely sad incident.

    • You are right. This happened to me too once long time ago, one animal was driving recklessly and I was in his “way” and after that he threaten me but I was lucky to be still alive. 90% people are actually animals in this country disguised as human beings. Very hard to find honest and peaceful humans here. Mostly are liberal fascist and judgemental demon brigade sucking and poisoning the humanity from within.

      These kinds of liberal fascist animals should be shot on sight.

        • Oh libtard triggered! You are the one who are posting hate speech and showing the janwar in u. Plz don’t embarrass urself. Whole world is sick of libtards. Liberals are playing the same card around the globe. Woman is lucifer’s 1st weapon against Humanity and Libtards are 2nd and atheist donkeys are 3rd! There are zionist and capitalist monkeys as well but u get the idea.

            • You are the one who should contact a psychiatrist. You have serious mental illness and Islamophobia and you are the militant terrorist.

              • Kitne liberals maro gey, har ghar se liberal niklay ga! Kal bhi liberals zinda thay, aaj bhi liberals zinda hain. So, you should go give your bhashan somewhere else, maybe!

                As more people get educated, more and more liberals keep showing up. Apke comments se lagta hai ap 1940s se 1970s ki paidawaar hain, aur aapko taleem naseeb nahin ho saki. I wish you well, and I hope aap apne betay aur specially betiyon ko zaroor taleem dain. Umeed hai ke unki taleem ke baad apko psychiatrist ki zaroorat nahin ho gi, unki success apko khud hi liberal bana de gi.

  • Umm.. I have a question. Why do we post this and say CAREEM driver murdered? When someone dies during robbery or mugging do we say abc bank’s sales officer murdered? or xyz company’s brand manager killed. It’s not like he was murdered for being a CAREEM driver.

  • May Allah have mercy on him and his family, Aameen.
    The culprit should be killed in front of the deceased family.
