Cops continue to remain in the ‘cross hairs’ of ‘hired guns’  as on Tuesday a law-enforcer was also among the nine fatal victims of urban gun violence, news reported.



“It was ride-by shooting as Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police (ASI) Mohammad Ibrahim, posted at Korangi No. 2 Police Station, was killed after three armed bikers opened indiscriminate fire on a patrolling vehicle”, an official told Samaa.

The shooters, wielding caliber 0.30 handguns, caught the cops off guard, did their deadly job, and revved away, he added.

“We are digging into this dastardly attack on one of our own. The killers will have to pay for it sooner or later. They just cannot outrun the long arm of the law”, the newly appointed Inspector General of Sindh Police, Ghulam Haider Jamali said.

“The policemen were not wearing any body armour by the time of the attack”, the sources quoted a top cop as saying. Here is a detail of civilian victims of violent crimes.


Tailor masters are in high demand ahead of Eid as Muslims mark this festival by donning on newly stitched apparels, but a seamster, namely Sakhi Dad, was fatally ‘ripped apart’ by  bullets in the seedy slums of Manghopir. The motive behind the murder remains elusive to police.

Orangi Town

A gunfire fatality was also reported from Orangi Town where a man, likely in his twenties, was shot dead.


On the other hand a woman lost her life to armed violence in Bilal Chowrangi area of Korangi, whereas shots fired in Nazimabad No. 2 took a man’s life.

Jheel Park

The dead body of a slaughtered man was found from near Jheel Park. Initial investigation says his killers murdered him by slitting his throat open with a sharp-edged tool.


In Gulbahar, two men, Ayub and Moin were gunned down just after midnight.
