Karachi: Teenage boy killed by cop’s son
KARACHI: A teenage boy and a police constable were killed in a shootout in the Darakhshan police precincts on Thursday.
Salman Lashari, 17, son of Ghulam Mustafa Lashari, and police constable Zaheer, 28, were gunned down and Salman Sarwar Abro, son of the Nawabshah SP, injured in a shootout at Ghulam Mustafa Lashari’s bungalow situated on Khayaban-e–Shamsheer in Defence.
Salman Lashari’s family rushed to the scene and informed the police, who took the victims to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre.
Clifton SP Ibadat Nisar said Salman Abro along with his police guards arrived at Salman Lashari’s residence, where they had a heated argument, following which Abro opened fire on Lashari and killed him on the spot.
When Lashari’s security guards heard the gunshots, they rushed to the scene.
While trying to escape, Abro’s police guards opened fire at the security guards, who retaliated and killed constable Zaheer and injured Abro.
SP Nisar said Abro and his family lived in the same locality. Abro had contacted Lashari on the latter’s mobile phone and then paid him a visit, during which they had an argument.
The Clifton SP said the argument was probably related to a girl. Police have arrested Abro and four cops with weapons.
