Karachi: Two found shot dead in graveyard
KARACHI: A teenager and a young man were found shot dead near Al-Asif Square on Thursday night, police said.
The officials added that the bodies were found in a graveyard, situated near Indus Plaza, within the remit of the Sohrab Goth police station.
“The victims have been identified as 14-year-old Shamoon and 25-year-old Lal Khan,” said a duty officer at the Sohrab Goth police station.
He said it seemed that both the victims had been gunned down at the graveyard because they were lying in a pool of blood.
However, he added, no spent bullet casing was found there due to darkness.
Soon after the bodies were spotted, dozens of ambulances dashed to the scene, causing panic in the adjoining localities. The bodies were shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for medico-legal formalities.
The official said that the victims used to sell second-hand clothes and lived in a nearby shantytown, Qayumabad. He added that the victims were not associated with any political party.
The police suspected personal enmity or a business dispute as a possible motive behind the killings.
