KARACHI: A man was shot dead on Sunday in front of police by a person allegedly due to a family dispute.

According to SP Tahir Noorani, the killer, Sohail, was transported in a police van from Darakhshan Police Station to the residence of Munawwar in Bahadurabad on court orders to recover the former’s wife and three children, reported Geo News.

Sohail had filed an abduction case against Munawwar, which was quashed by the court. The court, however, ordered the police to recover his family. Sohail’s wife had reportedly left him due to a fight with him.

Sohail managed to bring a concealed weapon with him in the police van. “This was police negligence,” SP Noorani said, adding that four policemen have been taken into custody. Police said further investigation in the case is underway.
