Man shot dead in Orangi
KARACHI: A man was shot dead and his companion wounded in an Orangi Town locality on Monday, police said.
They said that armed men on a motorbike fired at 49-year-old Farooq Khan and his companion, Israr, when they were going to offer Maghrib prayers in Mujahid Colony in Orangi Town.
However, the area of incident remained a source of dispute between police authorities of the Orangi and SITE Towns.
“According to the evidence collected initially, Khan and Israr were going to offer Maghrib prayers when two men on a motorbike fired multiple shots at them,” said SP Zain Sheikh of SITE Town. “Khan was hit by several bullets and it appears that he was the target.
However, later it emerged that the incident had occurred within the remit of the Mominabad Police Station, which falls in Orangi Town, so we left the matter for the police station concerned.”
