Man killed, two friends wounded in Karachi
Karachi: A young man was shot dead and his two friends were wounded in a gun attack in a street near Banaras Chowk, police said. The police suspected personal enmity as a possible motive behind the attack.
They said the victim man was booked in a murder case and all the three victims were associated with a real estate business in Ittehad Town.
Thirty-two-year-old Iqbal Shamzad was having a chat with his friends, Faqeer Mohammad and Mohammad Sardar, both in their late 30s, in the street as a matter of routine when some armed men sprayed them with a volley of bullets.
“The attackers were on foot and slipped away soon after the attack,” said an official at the Pirabad police station. He said that Iqbal was booked for the murder of his elder brother’s suspected killer a few months back. The police said that the victims were associated with a real estate business, mainly in Ittehad Town, that caused several armed clashes in recent months.
