Bullet-riddled body found in University road
KARACHI: The bullet-riddled body of a young man was found dumped in an open plot along the main University Road on Saturday, police said. They said the victim, later identified as Ismail Hussain, in his late 20s, was hit by three bullets fired from pointblank range.
“The body was found dumped at an deserted place near New Rizvia Housing Society along the main University Road,” said an official at the Sachal police station.
“He was identified with the ID card found in the pocket of his shirt. We have not yet been unable to trace any family link of the victim.” He said the card showed Swat as his hometown but had no address of Karachi.
The body was shifted to the Edhi morgue after medico-legal formalities at the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, he added.
