Karachi: Another man shot dead in ‘gang warfare’
KARACHI: A 38–year–old man was shot dead and two others were wounded inside their house in Mowach Goth on Monday in what police described as an attack related to the gang warfare that had claimed five lives in the Mauripur area a day earlier. The deceased was identified as Shahmir and the wounded victims as Ahmed Ali and Ali Mohammad, all hailing from Jacobabad, said an official at the Saeedabad police station. It emerged during the initial investigation that the incident was linked to the Mauripur killings, he said, adding that the same gang could be behind the early morning attack.
Saeedabad SHO Chaudhry Irshad said that Mowach Goth was once known as the area dominated by the Razzak Commando gang, which was associated with the slain Rehman alias Dakait.
The SHO said the attack could have been carried out on the suspicion that the victims were supporters of the Arshad Pappu gang.
The body and both the wounded victims were taken to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico–legal formalities and treatment, respectively.
Nobody had turned up to lodge the case at the Saeedabad police station till Monday evening.
