Karachi: ST, 3 MQM-H men shot dead
KARACHI: Six people, including a Sunni Tehreek (ST) joint unit in-charge, were killed Sunday in firing incidents that took place in separate parts of the city. Three of the dead were claimed by the Mohajir Qaumi Movement–Haqiqi (MQM-H) as their activists.
According to New Karachi Industrial Area (NKIA) SHO Shahbaz Shah, deceased Adnan, 25, was the joint-unit in-charge of ST. He was standing near his house in sector 5-F, when four armed men opened fire on him. Adnan was rushed to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital but he was died on the way.
Within 12 minutes of this incident, armed men targeted Ejaz in the same area. Ejaz was injured and also rushed to the ASH where he died soon after. Sunni Tehreek Central Leader Shahid Ghauri has claimed Ejaz as their party activist and said that he was murdered by the same people, who had killed an Adnan earlier. However, Shah said it was too early to say this. “It cannot be said whether the same people were involved in the two deaths. The investigation is in progress.” However, an FIR had not been registered till the filing of this report.
Reports that nine-year-old Sidra was gunned down were denied by the SHO, however, according to DSP Asghar Usman, Sidra died in the limits of Sir Syed Police Station.
UC councilor’s son shot dead Twenty-eight-year old Faisal was allegedly shot by motorcyclists when he was standing on the corner of his street, situated at sector 4-F within the jurisdiction of Korangi Industrial Area police station. He died on the way to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center. Faisal was the son of former Landhi Town union council Nazim Nisar Ahmed. “It is not possible for me to tell you the cause of this murder,” said SHO Mukhtiar Ahmed. “The victim’s family is not cooperating with us or the doctors. That’s why they returned the body without the proper medical legal formalities by the hospital. I sent four of my officers in plain clothes along with the body to get some information about the incident. It might have been a domestic issue.”
On the contrary, MQM-H joint Rabita Committee in-charge Akhtar Hussain claimed Nisar Ahmed as their party worker, saying that this is why he was targeted.
Two shot dead at Malir City Motorcyclists gunned down Dilawar at Ammar Yasir Society, Malir, late Saturday night and his friend Ahmed Ali was also critically wounded in the incident and died at Jinnah hospital.
According to on-duty policeman Iqbal Ghulam, Dilawar was the brother of a lady councilor affiliated with Muslim League Quaid-e-Azam. The police has handed over the bodies to the families. The policeman said that FIR, No. 3708, has been registered on behalf of Dilawar’s mother, Naureen, against the unidentified accused. Investigations are in progress. MQM-H’s Hussain also claimed the deceased as his party worker.
