Karachi: Teenager killed while purchasing Roti
KARACHI: A teenager was killed by two boys over a dispute while purchasing roti. A case was reported in the Korangi Industrial Area (KIA) police limits. Faizan, 15, son of Mohammed Rafiq, was stabbed to death after he broke the queue and moved to the front at a roti stall. Faizan asked two teenagers who were buying their rotis to allow him to buy a single Roti as he was in a hurry. The youngsters got angry at Faizan, and hurled abuses at him. A scuffle soon broke out. One of the youngsters picked up a knife from the stall and stabbed Faizan to death. The people caught both the youngsters and immediately shifted the injured to the hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.
The police informed the family of the deceased and called them to the hospital, where deceased Faizan’s father, Mohammed Rafiq, identified him as his elder son.
He said that he was a labourer by profession and a resident of 100 Quarters. Faizan used to work at Rehman–Hakim Aluminum Glass Workshop situated in Landhi–6. As per his daily routine, Faizan went to work in the morning. During lunch break, he went to purchase a roti from a stall, when two youngsters stabbed his son to death. After hearing the news of his murder, Faizan’s mother fell unconscious and suffered mental trauma.
KIA Station House Officer (SHO), Mansoor, said that upon receiving the information of the incident, the police rushed to the scene and arrested two youngsters. They were identified as Jibraan, 14, and Ibrahim, 13, who are residents of the same area.
Both the accused boys, Jibraan and Ibrahim, said that they had lost their temper and stabbed Faizaan to death. The police have lodged a case and are investigating further.
In another case, a body bearing stab wounds was found from Baloch Colony police limits. Advocate Malik Ayub Awan’s body was found from his house in Liaquat Ashraf Colony. Neighbours said that the deceased was the owner of a multi-storeyed building. He lived on the third floor of the building, while the other rooms had been rented out. The neighbours said that Awan was very cooperative with his tenants.
For the past two days, the neighbours realized that Awan was missing and got suspicious. They approached a friend of Awan, Dr Imtiaz, to help with the search. Dr Imtiaz is the owner of Shah Latif Welfare Trust, and ran his office on the 2nd floor of the building. He accompanied others to the gate of the deceased’s house where a foul stench engulfed the air.
The police was summoned, who then broke the gate of the house. Ayub Awan was found to be lying dead on the floor. He had been stabbed with a sharp blunt object in his abdomen.
SHO Baloch Colony, Haider Ali, said that the 60–year–old Awan was an advocate by profession. During initial inquiries, it was revealed that the deceased was staying alone.
He had a dispute over a piece of land in Bakhar (Mianwali) and in this regard he had also lodged an FIR at the Bakhar police station. He had informed the police that he had received murder threats by those he had named as suspects in the FIR. While reviewing the case history, the police suspected that those nominated in the FIR might have some connection to the murder. A case has been lodged on the complaint of the deceased’s friend, Dr Imtiaz, at the police station and investigation is underway.
