2 found shot dead in Landhi
KARACHI: Two youngsters were found shot dead in a Landhi area on Thursday, police said. They added that the dead had criminal record.
They said Saeed Akbar and Sardar Shah were found shot dead on a street parallel to the Allah Dad Ground in Ismail Goth of Landhi No 1.
Some sanitation workers an hour after sunrise spotted the bodies lying abandoned on the road. “They both were hit by multiple bullets fired from a very close range,” said an official at the Sharafi Goth Police Station.
“The bodies were shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for medico legal formalities and they remained unidentified for more than six hours.”
However, some investigators recognised the victims and traced their family links that established their identity, he said.
Initial findings suggested that the two had criminal records while Sardar had gone to jail on a robbery charge, the police added.
“They were mostly booked in robbery, illegal weapons and drugs charges. Their killings seemed to be a result of infighting within some criminal gangs,” added the official.
