Incidents of targeted killings continued on Wednesday as a policeman and a doctor were killed in separate areas of the city. Several areas of the city, including Malir, Godhra Camp and Orangi Town, also remained tense and a sense of fear prevailed as incidents of aerial firing were reported throughout the whole day. Police said that a 28-year-old police constable identified as Javed was gunned down by unidentified assailants on a motorcycle in the Bakra Piri area within the Malir City police station limits.
The body of the victim was shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC); whereas the police have registered an FIR.
In another incident, a gunny bag with the dead body of a doctor was found in the parking area of the JPMC. Police said that unidentified persons had thrown away the body of Dr Adnan from a car and fled the spot. An FIR has been registered against unidentified persons.
Meanwhile, a man was killed and buried inside a house allegedly by his wife and her friend. As per details, a man named Naseer had lodged an FIR at the Saeedabad police station that his friend, Zulfiqar, was kidnapped by unidentified persons. As the police started investigations, it was observed that the missing man’s wife, Salma, was living with the man who had lodged the FIR and they were arrested on suspicion.
During interrogation, it was revealed that Salma has fallen in love with Naseer and they planned to kill Zulfiqar, as he was the main hurdle between them getting married.
The arrested suspects told the police that they had killed Zulfiqar by suffocating him with a pillow while he was sleeping.
“Salma called me home when Zulfiqar was sleeping. She placed a pillow on the face of Zulfiqar and I choked his throat,” confessed Naseer.
The body of the deceased was later buried inside house No 514 in the Sajjanabad area of Saeedabad.
“I killed my husband with the help of Naseer as I want to be with him. We both planned to kill him as we wanted to live together and it was not possible in the presence of Zulfiqar,” said Salma.
Police have recovered the victim’s body from the house and registered FIR 510/2011 against the suspects.
Meanwhile, unidentified persons kidnapped a man from Lyari. The relatives of the missing person also protested against his kidnapping.
