Karachi: Man, son killed
KARACHI: A man and his son were gunned down in Baldia Town over a reported marriage proposal dispute on Wednesday morning, police said. They said the incident took place in Ittehad Town, within the remit of the Mochko police station, where unknown persons shot dead Sarfaraz and Gul Nawaz and wounded Mir Nawaz. The police said Mir Nawaz was also the son of Sarfaraz. The incident took place at Khyber Chowk in Itthad Town.
The bodies were taken to the Civil Hospital Karachi for medico–legal formalities and the wounded man was admitted for treatment. A dispute had developed between the victim’s family and a Mehsud family after Gul Nawaz proposed to a girl of the Mehsuds.
The police suspected that the Mehsuds were behind the killings as the male members of the family were not at their home.
They said Siraj, a son of Sarfaraz, nominated Amin, Maqbool, Abdus Salam, Ghayur and five unknown persons in an FIR registered at the Mochko police station.
