One group involved in murders of two DSPs in 10 days


Initial investigation into the killing of a senior police officer in Karachi has revealed that the same group was involved in the murder of another officer 10 days earlier.

Unidentified gunmen shot dead a senior police official DSP Zulfiqar Ali Zaidi near Eidgah Ground in Shah Faisal Colony area late Saturday night. Zaidi was the security in-charge of the Sindh High Court.

His killing came 10 days after the assassination of another senior police official, DSP Abdul Fatah Sangri. Sangri was gunned down along with his driver and security guard in Gulshan-i-Hadeed area on May 1.

Police detectives investigating the murders now believe that gunmen involved in both attacks belonged to the same militant group. Police suspect the involvement of a banned militant outfit in the two murders.
