Karachi: Cop among 2 killed
KARACHI: Two people, including a police head constable, were killed in separate incidents in the city on Wednesday night. Head Constable Sher Afzaal, 40, was sitting outside his house when two men riding a motorcycle arrived there and shot him dead in Muslimabad in the Quaidabad police limits. Afzaal was posted at the Awami Colony police station.
SHO Nasir Mashwani said Afzaal hailed from Waziristan and was the victim of an enmity traced to his hometown. Two months ago, his nephew was also killed as a result of the enmity in the same area. The attackers appeared to belong to the same group, the police said but added that they were looking into different lines of inquiry.
The policeman has left behind a widow and four children. In a separate incident, Ghulam Rasool, 30, was killed near the Rehmania Masjid in the Al-Falah police limits. SHO Nawaz Chattha said a resident told police that unidentified men had fatally shot the man in the head and fled.
