A man was shot dead at his house in Korangi on Saturday.

Rescuers transported the body to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre where he was identified as 28-year-old Shoaib Ishtiaq. The family told Zaman Town police that two armed men barged into their house and asked about the victim’s elder brother, namely Arshad.
