Renowned Shia Noha reciter Farhan Ali Waris on Wednesday night claimed that unidentified men had attempted to ambush his car near Karachi’s Teen Hatti area on Wednesday night but the assailants fled due to firing of his security guard.
Waris told a news channel that after the attack on Qawwal Amjad Sabri earlier in the day, the Jafaria Disaster Management Cell (JDC) had deployed a security guard for his protection. He said that upon reaching his home, he had sent the guard back in his car to the JDC office.
“When the vehicle reached Teen Hatti, unidentified men tried to stop it but the guard fired in the air, forcing them to let the car pass. I’m inclined to believe that the attack was meant to target me,” he said.
