Karachi: Woman and son killed; 2 men found dead
KARACHI: A woman and her son were killed by gunmen who had apparently barged into their home in New Karachi on Thursday morning.
Police said the incident took place in Sector 5-E, near Sindhi Hotel, where two suspects entered a house. They shot Ameera Begum, 72, and also fired at Muhammad Javed, 48, who was in another room of the house.
Police said the victims were taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where they succumbed to their wounds.
Quoting the neighbours, police said that before the incident they had heard noises coming from the house, followed by two gunshots.
SHO Muhammad Ilyas of the Bilal Colony police station said no valuables were stolen from the house.
The victim, Javed, had a halva-puri shop in the same area and had five children. The eldest son, 17, told the police that they had no enmity with anyone.
However, police suspected some personal enmity as a possible motive for the killings.
