At least 10 devotees have died in a heatwave that swept across Sehwan on Saturday.

The devotees had gathered to mark the 763rd urs celebrations of Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalandar (RA) which formally commence in Sehwan from today.

The mercury has peaked to 42 degrees centigrade on Saturday.

Tens of thousands of devotees, mostly from Sindh and Punjab, have gathered at the small town during the three-day event.

Last year, during the urs, severe temperatures claimed 53 lives.

The local administration had claimed that they would provide the pilgrims with cold water and make other necessary arrangements for them. However, the promises were not met.
