Scrap dealer shot dead in Shershah
KARACHI: A scrap dealer was shot dead in the Shershah area on Monday evening, police said. They said that the incident took place within the remit of the Shershah police station near Paracha Chowk where armed men riding a motorcycle intercepted Amanat Ali, 40, who was also on a bike, shot him in the head and rode away. Shershah SHO Mohammad Nawaz said that the victim was heading to his home on a motorcycle when he was targeted.
The victim had Rs100,000 in his pocket and a cellphone but the killers didn’t take away anything from his possession, he added.
The body was shifted to the Civil Hospital for medico-legal formalities. He was a scrap dealer.
The area SHO said that it appeared that the motive behind the killing was some personal enmity because some of his relatives were nominated in a murder case lodged at the Korangi Industrial Area police station.
