Two Lyari gangsters found shot dead
KARACHI: Two bullets-riddled bodies were found in a street in the Garden area in the early hours of Wednesday, officials said.
The police claimed that the victims were suspected gangsters associated with one of the many criminal gangs operating in strife-hit Lyari.
“The bodies were found in a street parallel to Nishter Road,” said an official at the Napier police station.
“Some sanitary workers spotted the bodies and informed their supervisors who finally reported the matter to police.”
He said the bodies were shifted to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico-legal formalities, where the victims were identified as Amjad Baloch and Rashid Baloch, both in their mid-20s.
“Amjad and Rashid were the residents of the Kalakot and Chaikwara areas in Lyari Town, respectively. They had a criminal record and were nominated in several cases pertaining to possession of illegal weapons, drugs and attempted murder,” said the official, adding that initial findings suggested that both were kidnapped from their residential areas on Tuesday evening.
