Karachi: Man held for killing uncle
KARACHI: A man was booked and arrested for killing his uncle over a property dispute in the old city area, police said. Zafar Iqbal fired at his uncle Ashfaq Rasheed, 48, over a property dispute at Gari Khata near Iqbal Market, said an official at the Nabi Bux police station.
While Mr Rasheed died on the spot, shopkeepers caught his fleeing nephew and handed him over to police after giving him a hiding. Police seized a TT pistol found in his possession, said SHO Naseeruddin Shah.
“During interrogation, the suspect confessed to the killing,” the SHO said.
The officer said the victim was a resident of Rabia Flowers, situated on Abul Hasan Ispahani Road, and father of four children. The body was shifted to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico-legal formalities and later handed over to his heirs.
An FIR (36/2012) was registered against Zafar Iqbal under Section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code on a complaint of Mohib Ashfaq, a victim’s brother.
