KARACHI: A 25-year-old woman was shot dead on Tuesday while a man was killed in a quarrel in separate incidents in the city, witnesses and police said. Witnesses said the woman was returning to her house in Landhi from a factory in the nearby Korangi Industrial Area when a young man on a motorcycle intercepted her and shot her after a verbal exchange.
