Karachi: Man gunned down in Defence shop
Karachi: An employee of a Huqqa shop was shot to death on Wednesday when armed men entered his workplace and opened fire after getting into a scuffle with the victim.
The Darakshan Police said that 22-year-old Gulfam – an employee of a shop in the Defence Phase-VI area – was busy working when two armed men entered the shop. One of the men was wearing a helmet and the two had clearly entered the restaurant with criminal intent, the law enforcers added.
Gulfam tried to overpower the suspects the moment he saw them, but the armed men opened fire, injuring him and another waiter. The suspects fled from the scene after wounding their victims. The injured men were rushed to a hospital, where Gulfam was pronounced dead.
Law enforcers believed that the waiter was killed due to a personal enmity and this was not a case of attempted robbery.
