Prominent trader killed in Turbat


Unidentified armed men shot dead a prominent trader Khalid Moosa Panghuri on Tuesday while he was sitting at his shop here. The incident spread panic and fear among the people, and shopkeepers closed their businesses in protest. A large number of people, shopkeepers and employees gathered in Turbat bazaar, and staged a strong protest against police over its failure to maintain law and order.
Police took the dead body to a hospital for autopsy, and handed it over to the deceased’s heirs for burial. Turbat is one of the troubled districts where incidents of targeted killing and kidnapping are frequent. What is more distressing for the people is the fact that the killers escaped from the scene and could not be arrested.
