Karachi: Unemployed youth commits suicide
KARACHI: An unemployed 25-year old committed suicide by shooting himself with his uncle’s pistol when his family denied him the means to go to Saudi Arabia to find work.
Nasir Gul, a resident of Pahar Gunj, in the jurisdiction of Sharah-e-Noor Jahan Police Station shot himself on Friday at home. He was jobless and belonged to a poor family. He wanted to go to Saudi Arabia to find work, but to fund his journey, he had no choice but to sell the family’s house, which his father stopped him from doing, despite repeated requests on the part of the deceased.
On Friday, he asked his father for permission to sell the house once again and when denied, he took a pistol belonging to his uncle, Reti Gul, shot himself and died quickly. His body was taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for legal formalities, after which his family took it away for burial. The news was confirmed by SHO Salman Waheed.
