Karachi: Suspected dacoit killed
KARACHI: A suspected dacoit was shot dead in Orangi Town. The Mominabad police said three dacoits barged into the house of Mohammed Anver in Musqati Mohalla in the small hours of Monday. They said the dacoits escaped under the cover of fire after the inmates raised the alarm. The police said that one of the bandits was shot and killed reportedly in the firing of his accomplices. The body was shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for an autopsy.
Sources at the hospital`s medico–legal section told Dawn that the suspect, wearing blue trousers and a dark-green shirt, received a fatal bullet wound in the chest. They said the killed suspect, who appeared to be a Baloch, was in his mid-20s. The police said the suspect remained unidentified and his body was kept at the Edhi morgue for want of identification. They said a pistol was also found on the body.
The police registered a case on the complaint of Mohammed Anver against the bandits for trying to commit a robbery. They said a separate case was also registered against the killed suspect for possessing an unlicensed pistol.
