Karachi: 2 more found shot dead near Khajji ground
KARACHI: Two more gunny bags containing the bodies of two young men were found on Monday in a graveyard near the Khajji ground, where only a day earlier a man had been found shot dead.
The bodies found in the Qadri graveyard had been trussed up, police said, adding that the victims appeared to be in their late-20s.
“The bodies had been dumped in a large crater in the graveyard in the early hours,” said Rizvia SHO Shahid Abbas.
He added the men had sustained a single bullet wound to their head that apparently proved fatal.
However, he said, they had been shot dead somewhere else before their bodies were dumped in the graveyard. “There was no blood stain and the investigators could not find any spent bulletcasing at the spot,” he explained.
The police shifted the bodies to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. Following a post-mortem examination, the bodies were taken to the Edhi morgue for want of identification, the police said.
They said no one had turned up at the Edhi morgue to claim the bodies on Monday.
However, the police said, the man who had been found shot dead a day earlier in the same area was identified by his relatives as Abu Bakr, a rickshaw driver and a resident of TooriBangash Colony of Orangi Town.
Yet another victim, who had been found shot dead in the same area almost a week ago, remained unidentified. The body had been kept at the Edhi morgue, the police said.
The SHO suspected that the killings were related to Lyari gang warfare as Jehanabad was not far from where the bodies had been found.
