2 traders shot dead in Gulshan-e-Iqbal
KARACHI: Armed men on two motorbikes resorted to indiscriminate firing on shops in Gulshan-i-Iqbal’s Block 4, killing two young shopkeepers and wounding four others.
“There is an ice depot, a teashop and a general store near the Disco Bakery bus stop,” said an official at the Gulshan-e-Iqbal Police Station. “As told by witnesses, at least four men on two motorbikes fired dozens of shots targeting the shops, which are owned by two families related to each other. The assailants left in a flash after executing the job.”
The victims were identified as two cousins, Azizullah and Hameedullah, while their aides — Jamal Shah, Saifullah and Wilayat Shah — sustained serious bullet wounds and shifted to a nearby private hospital for treatment.
