Karachi: Man, his daughter shot dead near airport
KARACHI: A man and his minor daughter were shot dead by two unidentified men riding a motorbike near the Karachi airport when he was driving home along with his three daughters.
“Thirty-seven-year-old Shahzad Khalid Farooqi was intercepted by two men on a motorbike who fired multiple shots at his vehicle near the Old Terminal,” said SSP Javed Akbar Riaz of Shah Faisal Town.
“He sustained a single bullet wound in the head that proved fatal. Another bullet hit his eight-year-old daughter, Wania, in the chest. She was taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre where she died.”
The victim was living in Model Colony where he had shifted from Nazimabad a few months ago. He worked in a tile manufacturing unit.
Though no group claimed the victim as their member, an initial police investigation showed that he had been associated with a banned militant outfit.
