Police register FIR against attempting murder attack on MQM-P’s Jamal Ahmed


KARACHI: A FIR has been filed in the Shahrah-e-Noor Jahan police station against a person accused of attempting murder attack  on Jamal Ahmed – a member of Sindh Assembly and Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P). The assault was made near his North Nazimabad residence the other day, local media outlet reported.

The FIR was registered on behalf of Ahmed’s guard Bakht Ali and includes charges of attempted murder on the MPA.

An unknown person on  a motorcycle shot at Ahmed near residence as Ahmed was about to leave for a tour of Shadman Town – his area, but the murder attempt was futile. The MQM-P leader’s guard reacted instantaneously firing at the attacker who managed to flee.

Thereafter, security officials reached the scene to collect forensic evidence, especially as the assailant had left behind his bike.

The security officers, however, have not issued any comments explaining what had transpired, except that they “are verifying whether the attacker was specifically targeting the MPA or not”, a local media outlet reported.

MQM-P Rabita Committee member Kanwar Naveed Jameel in a press conference condemned the murder attempt and asked for action to be taken against the assailant.

Ahmed won PS-110 constituency of Karachi in 2013.
