Karachi: Police spy shot dead in Qasba Colony
KARACHI: A ‘police informer’ was gunned down near his Qasba Colony residence on Tuesday, officials said.
They said 37-year-old Fazal Karim was shot dead by two armed motorcyclists when he was talking over the cellphone in Qasba Colony No 2.
“He lived in the same area and was standing outside his home and talking to someone over the phone,” said Sub-Inspector Jehanzeb, the SHO of the Pirabad Police Station. “Two men on a motorbike emerged there and one of them fired at him. He was hit by two bullets and died on the spot.”
The body was moved to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for a post-mortem examination, he said, adding that the attackers ran away after the firing.
The police later registered a murder case (FIR No. 113/11) against unidentified persons under Sections 302 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code.
