Doctor shot dead in Quetta
QUETTA: A young doctor was shot dead by unknown armed car snatchers in the Satellite Town, Monday morning. The police officials said three unknown armed bandits approached Dr Salman Hafeez, an anaesthetist in the Civil Hospital Quetta and after snatching his car shot him dead. According to details, the incident occurred when the doctor was about to leave his house in the Block No. 3, Satellite Town to drop his two children (a son and a daughter) at a local school. The armed bandits asked him to hand over the car to them.
Without showing resistance, he handed over the keys of the car to the bandits. Soon after this, the car snatchers sat in the car and while fleeing they shot at Dr Salman, who ran behind the car as his daughter was sitting in it. Dr Salman sustained serious bullet injuries, and breathed his last before he was provided any medical assistance. In the meantime, the armed bandits left the daughter of the deceased doctor near Mini Market, some 1,000 yards away from the site of the incident.
On information the police reached the spot and started investigation. The police and law–enforcement agencies have failed so far to trace out the bandits involved in the killing. The broad-day light cold–blooded murder caused panic in the area.
There was mourning in the house of Dr Salman and quite moving scenes were witnessd as soon as his dead body reached the house. It may be mentioned here that Dr Salman Hafeez, the son of former Station Director of Radio Pakistan, Abdul Hafeez Chaudhry, had bought the Alto new three days back.
