By Faraz Khan
KARACHI: What started as a petty fight over a girl at a private dance party, ended up claiming the life of the personal security guard of well-known neurologist Dr Hashim’s son in the limits of Darakshan police station.
As per details, 35-year-old Sher Mohammad, son of Abdul Qadir, hailing from Dera Bugti, Balochistan, was shot dead in a flat at Saba Commercial late on Saturday night and his body was shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for legal formalities.
SHO Raja Tariq while explaining the incident said, “The deceased was one of the private gunmen of Dr Hashim’s young son, namely Basit, who is an MBBS student and had arranged a private dance party at his flat located at Sea View apartments, Phase VI, Defence, on Saturday night.
“One of Basit’s friends, Nasir, took one of the girls named Rimla away from the party to his flat at Saba Commercial during the dance party which aggravated Basit and his friends, including Rao Junaid, Owais and others,” said the SHO. “They went to Nasir’s flat, where Junaid opened fire at them with his TT pistol, resulting in the death of Basit’s gunman.”
Talking about the girl who was the cause of the quarrel, the officer said Rimla is a MBA student and resides in Defence as a paying guest as her family is in USA. “Coming from well off backgrounds, these youngsters organise private parties, where drugs and booze are very common, increasing the chances of these incidents,” the officer said.
He said that Junaid also belongs to a rich family and runs a showroom. “According to the law, everyone of them, including Basit, should be booked in the FIR and arrested but as the deceased’s brother nominated only Junaid in the FIR, the police have arrested him,” said the officer.
Separately, a suspended worker of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was shot dead at Sector 9-A, Orangi Town no 5, in the remits of Mominabad police station.
Police officials said that an unidentified motorcyclist shot dead Farooq, 27, son of Anwar, when he was returning home, located in Sector 11, from a wedding ceremony during the early morning hours. SHO Ahmed Khan confirmed that the deceased was a suspended worker of the MQM, who after a family dispute was living separately at Sector 11. Police have registered an FIR against unknown persons and initiated an investigation.
Similarly, a body of a teenage boy was found near Parsi School, Korangi no 1 1/2, within the limits of Zaman Town police station. Police officials said that they found the body after the locals informed them about it. The body was taken to JPMC for legal formalities where the boy was identified as Waqar, 18, son of Khursheed, a resident of house no 190, Sector 48/C, Korangi. Police officials quoted the statement of the victim’s family and said that they did not have any enemies. However, the police officials suspect that the deceased was in the company of some bad guys therefore it was possible that his accomplices shot him over some issue. The case has been registered against unidentified persons.
In a road mishap, a minor girl was crushed to death when a speedy UTS bus, bearing registration number JB-4104, hit her at Qasba Colony, within the precinct of Peerabad police station. Police officials said that the accident took place when the nine-year-old girl, Arfa, daughter of Hashim had left her house to buy sweets and the bus driver Zulfiqar hit her when she was crossing the road. Police officials said that the driver was speeding and could not handle the bus, hence the bus also hit two rickshaws and injured two women. Following the incident, an angry mob caught the driver and handed him over to the police after thrashing him. They also tried to torch the vehicle but the police controlled the situation.
Similarly, a 30-year-old woman, identified as Sara, was killed while her husband Khalilur Rehman, 35, wounded when their motorbike collided with another motorbike at Vita Chowrangi, within the jurisdiction of Korangi Industrial Area police station.
