Karachi: Jobless man shot dead
KARACHI: A jobless man, who had gone missing on Sunday, was found shot dead in Gulshan-i-Buner on Monday, police said. The victim, Mohammad Idrees, had told his family before leaving home that he was going to meet a friend but he did not contact anyone afterwards, said a duty officer at the Sukhan police station.
The body bearing gunshot wounds was spotted near Murghi Khana stop in Gulshan-i-Buner, SI Mohammad Ayaz told Dawn. He added that the body was shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for medico-legal formalities.
He said the victim was father of a child and had divorced his wife two years back. Suspecting personal enmity as a probable motive behind the killing, the police picked up a friend of the deceased for interrogation.
