Karachi: The bullet-riddled body of 26 year-old Nadia was found near Government Girl’s School situated in Chanaser Goth on Tuesday.
Police officials told The News that primary suspects, as of now, are Nadia’s brothers. The officials have cited her love-marriage with a drug-peddler as the reason why her brothers might have committed such a heinous act.
Police officials claim that, some two years back, Nadia had a love-marriage with a man named Farooq. The police claim that her husband is a drug peddler who is presently serving time in Central Prison. Last night, Nadia left her parent’s residence to go to her husband’s house. Before she reached her husband’s house, however, she was kidnapped by unidentified people. Her kidnappers then shot her dead, and dumped her body near the school.
The body was noticed by passers-by who subsequently informed the police. A mobile van from the Tipu Sultan police station was deployed to the location and shifted her body to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) for legal formalities.
Police claimed that though they suspect that Nadia’s brothers were involved in the murder, they would continue investigating all possible leads. Meanwhile, the owner of a leather factory was gunned down near Teen Talwar in Clifton.
Abdul Shauib Rasool, 50, was gunned down by two motorcyclists who intercepted his Suzuki Hi-roof near Teen Talwar and opened fire on him. The suspects immediately fled the spot, leaving their victim in a pool of blood.
Subsequently, panic spread in the area and a police mobile was rushed to the crime scene. Rasool had expired by the time the police officials had reached the scene of the crime. Police officials shifted the body to the JPMC for legal formalities.
The Station House Officer of Frere police limits, Ishaq Lashari, informed The News that Rasool was a local businessman and a resident of Bath Island. He hailed from Buner, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
