Karachi: Robbers kill partner to flee
KARACHI: As reported by the Dawn News on Sunday, a suspected bandit was killed in Orangi Town on Saturday allegedly by the firing of his own aides who were spotted by the people during a robbery bid, police and witnesses said. They said at least three armed men barged into the house of Muhammad Shakil in Orangi Town’s Sector 11½, but a member of the family woke up after hearing their noises. Iqbal Market police said that the family member saw bandits in his house and shouted for help which attracted the attention of other family members. Muhammad Shakil, the eldest in the family, came out of his room and tried to overpower one of the bandits, they added. “As he tried to do so, the other two bandits started firing and a bullet hit their own aide in the chest and he died on the spot,” said an official at the Iqbal Market police station. He said that the two bandits escaped on a motorbike, leaving their accomplice to die. “The deceased appeared to be in his early-thirties and we have recovered a TT pistol from his possession,” added the official.
