Karachi: Woman killed in attack on house
KARACHI: An elderly woman was killed and her daughter and two grandsons were injured in an armed attack on her house in Ittehad Town on Wednesday, police said. They said that two neighbouring families had developed a dispute last week near Jhangwi Chowk in Ittehad Town that turned ugly on Wednesday evening when members of one of the families fired shots at the other one. “The two families belong to the Mehsud and Afridi tribes,” said Inspector Imtiaz Mir Jatt, the SHO of the Mockho police station.
“The male members of the Mehsud family with some of their aides stormed Allah Khan Afridi’s home and fired shots indiscriminately. There were only women and children and the firing killed Allah Khan’s 65-year–old mother Zul Farosh and left her daughter Asna Bibi and her two sons eight–year–old Ashfaq and 10–year–old Shahid wounded. The attackers ran away after the firing.”
He said that the police after initial investigations raided multiple places and arrested two suspects — Khalid and Abdullah. “The nature of dispute is not yet clear but we have identified the attackers and will arrest them very soon,” added the area SHO.
