KARACHI: The bullet-riddled bodies of three men were found in as many city areas on Tuesday. In the first incident, a man was found shot dead near Steel Town on Tuesday, police said. They said that the bullet–riddled body of 60-year-old Bugghan was found near a link road on the National Highway. He had sustained two bullet wounds in the chest and head.
“The victim originally hailed from Larkana and lived here in a rented place near the airport,” said Sub-Inspector Yaqoob Sammoo, the SHO of the Steel Town police station. “Initial findings suggest that he was first kidnapped and then killed by assailants, who dumped the body in an isolated area. He was employed by a lawyer as an office assistant.”
He said the body was shifted to the JPMC for medico-legal formalities and the police were waiting for the victim’s family, which was due to arrive in Karachi, to lodge an FIR.
Similarly, the bullet-riddled body of a young man was found in Ittehad Town within the remit of the Saeedabad police station on Tuesday, police said.

“Some transporters spotted the body at a desolate place in Dawood Goth in Ittehad Town and informed the police about it,” said Inspector Manzoor Ahmed, the SHO of the Saeedabad police station.
The body was shifted to the Civil Hospital Karachi for a post-mortem examination and from where it was moved to the Edhi morgue in Sohrab Goth for a want of identification, he said, adding that the body was finally identified by the victim’s family at the morgue.
“Initial interaction with the victim’s brother suggests that the youngster might have been fallen prey to a family feud,” the area SHO added.
In the third such incident, the bullet-riddled body of a youngster was found on Mauripur Road in Lyari Town. An official at the Karli police station said that the body, which was stuffed in a gunny bag, lying abandoned along the Maripur Road near Crown Cinema.
