Property dealer gunned down in Gulistan-e-Jauhar
KARACHI: A real estate agent was gunned down in Gulistan-e-Jauhar on Tuesday, police said.
They said that 42-year-old Munawwar Iqbal was alone at his office situated outside an apartments building in block 7 of Gulistan-e-Jauhar when he was targeted.
“Four men on two motorbikes stopped outside his office, called M.M. Marketing,” said an official at the Gulistan-e-Jauhar Police Station. “Two of them got off their motorbikes and entered the office where one of the two armed men fired at him before all the four sped away,” he said quoting a witness account.
The official said the victim was hit by three bullets each in head, chest and abdomen and died on the spot. The body was later shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for medico-legal formalities.
The police during initial investigations found personal reasons behind the attack. They said the victim had a history of property disputes, though they were not sure if that motivated the killing.
