Imambargah trustee killed in Karachi
KARACHI: A trustee of the Hussainian Iranian Imambargah in Kharadar was shot dead on Thursday night just two days after the killing of an eyewitness to the Imambargah Ali Murtaza bomb blast.
Twenty-five year old Agha Mansoor Ahmed was attacked while he was sitting with some friends at his restaurant on MA Jinnah Road in Saddar late on Thursday night.
“According to the initial investigation, this is a case of a sectarian killing,” said Saddar Town Superintendent of Police Dr Ameer Sheikh.
Quoting the deceased’s friends, the deputy superintendent of police (DSP) said that an armed man entered the restaurant and opened fire at Ahmed before fleeing. The DSP said that while nobody knew if there were more assailants, he was sure that the assailant had not entered the restaurant with the intention of robbery, as no nothing was stolen.
Ahmed’s funeral prayers were offered at the imambargah after Friday prayers and he was laid to rest at Lyari graveyard.
