BHIWANDI: Rescue workers at the Jilani site teared up on finding the body of Farida Khan
(30) clutching that of her youngest three-year-old daughter Reha in the debris on Wednesday. Rescuers also found the bodies of her two older daughters Falak (5) and Farah (6) as well as her husband Murtuza (35).
Their son Sadiq (8) survived as he had left for his grandfather, Mustafa’s place in another Bhiwandi locality a day before the tragedy.
A relative said the family resided on the first floor of the building and Murtuza ran a shop in Bhiwandi.
Wasim Shaikh, a local resident who helped rescuers for three days, told TOI: “Though I had pulled out other bodies, I will never forget the way Farida had held her daughter to save her.” Faijan Ansari, another local, said, “She had covered her daughter completely against the falling ceiling.”
Mustafa, who lives with his other son, spent three days at the site in the hope that Murtuza and family would be found alive.
