Karachi: Officer gunned down on his way to home
KARACHI: As reported by the Dawn News on Sunday, a police constable was gunned down in Nazimabad on Saturday, officials said. They said that 37-year-old Ejaz Ahmed was on his way home after work at the Sharifabad police station, where he had been posted for a few years. He came under attack by armed bikers when he reached Nazimabad No 1.
“He was a resident of Siraj Colony in Nazimabad No 1 and was shot close to his house,” said an official at the Rizvia police station. “The attack took place almost an hour before sunrise and there may hardly be any eyewitness to the incident. However, some people saw two persons riding a motorbike speeding away from the crime-scene after the shooting.”
The victim sustained a single bullet wound in his chest and died on the spot. The body was shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for medico-legal formalities.
“The family denies the victim’s enmity with anyone. The murder seems to be linked with his professional duties,” said the official, adding that the police had registered a case (FIR 614/2010) under Sections 302 (premeditated murder) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of the victim’s elder, Sub-Inspector Riaz Ahmed, associated with the city’s traffic police department.
