Karachi: Young man found shot dead in Lyari
KARACHI: The trussed-up body of a young man was found in the Lyari area on Saturday, police said. They said that the bullet-riddled body with hands and legs tied up was found near Niazi Chowk on Shah Waliullah Road in the early hours of Saturday.
“The victim was identified as 25-year-old Nasir Ali Baloch,” said Inspector Safdar Mashwani, the SHO of the Kalri police station.
“He was a resident of the Baghdadi area and worked as a daily wage earner in the production unit of a pharmaceutical company in SITE. He had left his workplace on Friday evening and had since been missing.”
He said that the police believed that the victim was kidnapped, brutally tortured and then shot dead. He sustained two bullet wounds in the head, he added.
The victim was unmarried and did not have any criminal record, the area SHO said, ruling out that the victim was murdered due to some personal enmity. He added that gang rivalry could be the cause of the killing.
