Gizri police said that as soon as the prayer leader ended the prayer, 55-year-old Babar, son of Nisar Ahmed, a resident of Defence and a cloth trader, pulled out a blade from his pocket and slit his throat. He was taken to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, where doctors termed his condition critical. The police said man attempted to commit suicide as he had been in depression.
