Youth killed during Kunwari Colony protest
KARACHI: A youngster was killed and another wounded in firing during a protest demonstration by hundreds of charged residents of Kunwari Colony on Wednesday against the Rangers’ Tuesday operation.
Area people and the law-enforcers blamed each other for the shooting, officials and witnesses said.
The incident occurred during a protest by Kunwari Colony residents, who said that the agitation was a sign of growing resentment against the security officials for paralysing their lives amid fear and uncertainty.
They demanded the release of the over 300 people reportedly picked up by Rangers personnel in Tuesday’s operation against terrorists and criminal elements in the area.
