Man shot dead in Gulistan-e-Jauhar
KARACHI: A man in his early 50s was gunned down in Gulistan-e-Jauhar on Saturday.
The area police said that Akhtar Gul Bangash was hit by two bullets when a man riding a motorbike fired at him and fled in the Pehalwan Goth area.
“The victim was a security guard by profession,” said an official at the Gulistan-e-Jauhar Police Station.
“Initial investigations suggest that the killing was the result of some family feud and we have almost reached the conclusion.”
He said the victim was in dispute with his son-in-law for a few weeks on some domestic issue and an exchange of hot words between the two took place yesterday.
“Some family members tried to mediate to resolve the dispute. The family’s suspicion falls on the victim’s son-in-law, who resembles the appearance of the lone killer, seen by some people who happened to be at the scene of the incident,” added the official.
