Karachi: Civil judge escapes life bid
KARACHI: A senior civil judge, Syed Zameer Ahmed Naqvi, escaped a life attempt near his house situated in FB Area, Block–17, within the precincts of Gulberg police station, here on Wednesday. Police officials said Justice Naqvi left for the office early morning with a sister and brother-in-law in his car who were to be dropped on the way. Two armed motorcyclists rode close to his car and shot a single bullet before getting away, they added.
Justice Naqvi was taken to the Agha Khan Hospital where doctors termed his condition out of danger. Police officials said that apparently, the incident took place over some personal enmity. Justice Naqvi is serving as the 2nd Judicial Magistrate and Civil Judge East. Police high-ups have formed an investigation committee comprising SSP Central Asim Khan, SP Crime Branch Saqib Sultan and SP CID Mazhar Mashwani to probe the ambush.
