HYDERABAD: Unidentified persons on Monday opened fire on the vehicle of Pakistan Peoples Party’s candidate Syed Zulfiqar Ali Shah from PS-46 Mirpurkhas.

He said police would inquire into the incident and arrest the culprits.

A spokesperson for the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) said the ECP had taken notice of the firing incident and sought a report from the Sindh chief secretary and police chief, directing them to take immediate action against the perpetrators.
