KARACHI: At least two security personnel were killed on Tuesday after unidentified gunmen opened fire on their vehicle near Parking Plaza in Karachi’s Saddar area, a private TV channel reported. The personnel were identified as Khadim Hussain and Razzaq. Officer Razzaq died on spot because of the firing whereas Khadim was rushed to the hospital after the incident where he succumbed to his wounds. The police and rescue workers arrived at the scene and cordoned off the entire area but not before the attackers managed to escape. Karachi Police Chief Mushtaq Mehar had told the reporters after he arrived at the scene, “Two personnels of a security institution were fired upon near Parking Plaza. One of them has been killed while the other is critically injured and has been shifted to a local hospital.” Evidences were also collected from the crime scene and sources indicated that three witnesses were also taken into custody by the police. The personnel driving the vehicle lost control of it after he was shot resulting in the car crashing into a wall nearby. The police chief said, “We have collected some empty bullet casings of 9mm pistol from the scene, however, further investigations are still underway,” he added. Law enforcement agencies’ personnel had been attacked in the past too. In December last year, masked gunmen riding a motorcycle had shot dead two military policemen at the city’s main MA Jinnah Road. Witnesses said that bike-riding militants took head-shots of the two military police personnel who were sitting inside their vehicle.
