Karachi: Body found in gunny bag
KARACHI: The body of a young man was found stuffed in a gunny bag in Orangi Town on Monday, police said. They added that some area people spotted the gunny bag tied to a motorbike, abandoned on the main road near Chandni Chowk in Sector 11½ and subsequently informed the area police about it.
“The police found that the bag had the body of a youngster with multiple bullet wounds,” said an official at the Pakistan Bazaar police station.
He said the police shifted the body to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and impounded the motorbike (KEP 6917).
The victim was later identified as Nauroz alias Jehanzaib, in his mid-20s. He said the victim was staying at his relative’s place in the same area and went missing on Sunday night.
The body was handed over to the family after medico-legal formalities. While the police remained clueless about the people behind the victim’s kidnapping and killing, they guessed at the possible motive behind the incident.
“The victim was a resident of Keamari Town,” said SP Khurram Waris of Orangi Town. “From the initial information obtained through police record, it was found that he was associated with one of the criminal gangs operating in Lyari. A few weeks back when his gang developed a dispute with another he left the area and started living with his relatives in Orangi Town.”
In North Nazimabad, a Sunni Tehrik activist was killed in firing that police suspected was a result of some property dispute. The officials sounded confident that the incident was not a targeted killing.
They said Shahid Qadri, in his mid 30s, was having a chat with a friend, Mukhtar, in Wahid Colony of North Nazimabad Town when they were attacked by two armed men riding a motorbike.
“Shahid Qadri and Mukhtar received gunshot wounds and were shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital,” said SP Asad Chaudary of North Nazimabad Town. “Shahid died at the hospital.”
“When we investigated the matter, it emerged that the attackers were allegedly the relatives of Mukhtar Khan, who had a dispute with him over family property.”
The target was Mukhtar Khan, he said quoting him as alleging that his paternal uncle was behind the attack.“Shahid Qadri was an activist of the Sunni Tehrik but his political association was not the cause of the murder. Such message was also conveyed to the party leadership, which is convinced about the police findings,” the SP said.
