Karachi
Five people, including an activist of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and a former policeman, were gunned down on Thursday.
Twenty-four-year-old Danish Kaleemullah, who was associated with the MQM’s Medical Aid Committee, was shot by unidentified motorcyclists near the Siddique-e-Akbar mosque in Sector 11½ of Orangi Town, said a Pakistan Bazaar police official. The wounded man was taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital (ASH), where he died.
Police said the victim was an activist of the MQM’s unit No 118 and an employee of the ASH, adding that his father, who was also an activist of the party, had been murdered in Orangi Town in similar circumstances.
Following the killing on Thursday, unidentified men on motorcycles resorted to aerial firing in the locality and forced shopkeepers to suspend their business activities.
Condemning the murder, the MQM’s Rabita Committee said 18 party activists were killed this year.
The leaders offered condolences to Kaleemullah’s family, and demanded of the authorities to arrest the killers.
