Karachi: Robbers kill man
KARACHI: A labourer was shot dead when he resisted an armed robbery in his house in Sector 14-B of Baldia Town early Thursday morning.
At least eight bandits entered a house in Raees Goth and took the family hostage at gunpoint, said an official at the Mauripur police station.
The bandits opened fire on 36-year-old Atif, son of Ashraf, when he refused to hand over cash to them.
The young man died on the spot and the bandits fled without taking away any valuables from the house.
The body was shifted to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico-legal formalities.
The victim had two children, the police said.
