People collect cooking oil from leaking tanker at Sukkur
TV grab.

A tanker, carrying cooking oil, started leaking after it was hit by a speeding truck at Pano Aqil near Sukkur on the National Highway on Friday morning, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Locals, carrying utensils in their hands, rushed to the site of the incident and jostled with each other to collect oil. 

The incidents of oil tanker overturning have become common in our country where people without taking into account the fact that oil is inflammable grab the opportunity with both hands and start collecting the lubricant primarily for selling it in the market. 

Around 60 people had lost their lives in one such incident near Bahawalpur several years back, showing how dangerous it is to collect oil at the site of accidents.
