Her poor condition after the incident was shared by JFK Animal & Rescue Shelter. The authorities said that Noor Jehan has sustained injuries and seemed to be lifeless. It’s evident that her caretaker did not adhere to the guidelines provided by Four Paws.
The tragic news of Noor Jehan battling for her life in the concrete pool of Karachi Zoo has triggered the nation. The people shared heartfelt messages for her on social media and demanded action against the authorities.
