2 men caught after shooting Lyari UC nazim’s brother
KARACHI: Lyari police arrested two mobile phone snatchers Monday as they fled after injuring the brother of UC-6 Nazim and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) member, within the jurisdiction of the Baghdadi Police Station.
Thirty-three-year-old Abdul Razzak, who sustained a single bullet on his head, was rushed to the Civil Hospital Karachi outside the UC-6 office where he was admitted in critical condition.
According to Lyari police spokesman Raja Sheraz, Razzak along with his two friends, Abdul Samad and Ravi, was passing by when the two accused, on a motorcycle, held him up. “They managed to loot one mobile phone and some money, but when Razzak was asked to pay-up, he resisted and they opened fire on him.”
Two policemen on patrol got to the scene after they heard the gunshots. The policemen asked the robbers to surrender which they resisted and opened fire on the policemen. The policemen finally managed to arrest the accused, Naeem and Ayaz, in injured condition and recovered two TT pistols, a looted cell phone, money and a motorcycle from their possession. An FIR, numbered 6208, was registered against them.
