What Forces Lahori Man To Attempt Suicide Along With 3 Kids?

In Lahore, a father, fed up with inflation, tried to killed himself.

Rescue 1122 transported the guy who committed suicide with his three kids, and themselves to a hospital in critical condition.

The police claimed that the city was under tremendous financial and emotional strain as a result of rising inflation.

He was unable to provide for himself and his family due to the rapidly rising expenses of his needs.

The youngsters who received poison pills from their father were between the ages of 8 and 15, according to the authorities.

The Sensitive Price Index (SPI), which measures weekly inflation, showed an increase of 31.83 percent for the combined income group ending January 19 on a year-over-year basis, according to data released by the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS) on Friday. This increase was caused by a sharp rise in the cost of both food and non-food items.

More than 80 million people in Pakistan live in poverty, and committed suicide, according to Miftah Ismail, a former finance minister. Up to 60% of Pakistanis make less than Rs 35,000 each year.

The top five threats Pakistan faces include a debt crisis, protracted and/or rapid inflation, state collapse, a failure of cyber security measures, and a concentration of digital power, according to the World Economic Forum’s global crisis risk assessment released last week.
