Karachi: Man surrenders after killing bandit
KARACHI: A man took out his licensed pistol and simply shot two robbers when they intercepted him in Madina Colony on Tuesday, killing one of them. He later walked into a police station and told the truth. Police said they had received information about an injured man lying in Madina Colony. They shifted the man, with blood oozing out of his wound, to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, wondering who he was and why he had been shot.
The police had barely started investigations when a man, Tariq Masood, approached them to reveal that he had shot the man. A trader by profession, Masood was returning home from Nipa Chowrangi, when two armed men started chasing him near Madina Colony. When they attempted to loot him, he took out his pistol and shot one of the suspects injured while the other escaped.
The injured suspect died during treatment at the hospital. Police said they found an unlicensed pistol from the alleged bandit identified as Mohammad Imran, a resident of Defence Phase-II.
A case has been registered and investigations are under way. The bullet-riddled body of an unidentified man was found dumped in a graveyard in Liaquatabad. The body was recovered from the C-1 Area graveyard. The corpse was shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital.
According to SHO Mumtaz Hussain, some people had come to the graveyard to burry a relative when they spotted a grave, whose one slab was missing, in which the dead body was found with the victim’s hands tied with a rope.
