Man found shot dead in Karachi
KARACHI: A young man found dead near Gharibabad, Essa Nagri, was taken to a hospital by a rickshaw driver on Thursday, police said, quoting the hospital sources as saying.
A police official at the PIB Colony police station said that the rickshaw driver fled from Abbasi Shaheed Hospital after leaving the body there.
The victim`s body bore two gunshot wounds in each shoulder, the police added.
The computerised national identity card recovered from the victim identified him as 40-year-old Saeed, son of Wakil Khan hailing from Kohat and resident of Itthad Town in Karachi, the police said.
The jurisdiction of the case also became a matter of dispute between the PIB Colony and the Liaquatabad police stations as neither of the police stations were ready to accept that the body had been found in their limits.
A duty officer at the PIB Colony police station said: “We will complete the formalities if other police station does not accept their responsibility, but we are waiting for the family to turn up.”
The body was shifted to the Edhi morgue after completing legal formalities.
