Karachi

October 30, 2020

A milk shop owner was killed in a firing incident in Malir’s Model Colony on Thursday. The body was taken to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, where he was identified as 25-year-old Adnan, son of Akram. The family took the body away with them without any medico-legal formalities.

Police said the incident took place on the same day when his family was busy in making preparations for the reception of his brother, Arsalan.

Arsalan told police that Adnan, the youngest of four siblings, left the house to open the shop when the incident took place, adding that a neighbour informed him about the incident and when he reached the shop, he found his brother lying in as a pool of blood.

Police said they were looking for witnesses and CCTV footage to ascertain whether he was killed during a mugging bid or the motive behind the killing was something else. Police said that they were waiting for the family to register a case or else they would register the case on behalf of the state.
