Karachi: Targeted killing claims life of another political activist
KARACHI: A young member of the Punjabi-Pakhtun Ittehad organising committee was shot dead at a shop within the remit of the Al-Falah police station, Malir, on Sunday, officials said. They added that Wali Mohammad Aryan, 33, was having a haircut in the Kehkashan Society when some armed men barged into the barber shop and shot him dead before fleeing.
The victim was rushed to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. A senior police officer of the Al-Falah police station requesting anonymity told Dawn that the killing seemed to be a result of some rivalry between the PPI and its student wing.
