Karachi: Robbers kill bakery worker, shepherd
KARACHI: Two people were killed in separate acts of violence in parts of the city on Thursday, police said. A 25-year-old worker at a bakery was shot dead by bandits in Orangi Town early in the morning.
The police said victim Mohammed Salman, son of Umer Din, was asleep outside the Bismillah Bakery in the A-1 area when three men arrived there in a Suzuki pick-up. They said the victim woke up and struggled with the intruders, who opened fire, killing him instantly. The police said the dacoits fled after the shooting and they could not take along anything from the bakery.
The body of the victim, a resident of North Karachi, was taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where sources said the victim had received a single bullet from point-blank range as it pierced his upper torso.
