KARACHI: At least three people, including a woman, were killed in firing incidents late Tuesday night, while alleged target killer Asif and seven others were arrested during numerous raids and search operations conducted by police in various areas of the metropolis, Geo News reported.


Unidentified individuals on Tuesday night broke into a house in Lyari’s Ali Muhammad neighbourhood and killed a married couple. Police commented that the incident – that led to the deaths of Sana, 32, and Taj Muhammad, 40 – stemmed from a gang war and that further investigation is under way.


In similar firing incidents, 33-year-old Zubair was killed in Keamari Jackson, while 28-year-old Qazi Muhammad was injured in Nazimabad.


`Munazza was raped`


Following an initial postmortem report – that disclosed the domestic helper Munazza, who mysteriously passed away in Lahore`s Model Town, H Block, died of suffocation on Sunday – the full report obtained by police revealed she was raped before her murder.


The autopsy report discovered finger marks on the 25-year-old victim`s face and neck, implying that a struggle had ensued when she was strangulated to death.

Munazza, who hailed from Vehari, passed away on Saturday after she was allegedly tortured by her employer. “The deceased passed away after she was suffocated by way of a pillow placed on her nose,” the first postmortem report had stated. “Torture marks on her face and throat were found,” it added.


Police, on the other hand, had stated on Saturday that the woman`s body did not have any torture marks. The body was handed over to her family.


Munazza’s employer, who is in police custody, is being investigated.


Police operations, arrests


Operations were carried out in Karachi’s North Nazimabad, Liaquatabad, Baldia`s Ittehad Town, Orangi Town, with police recovering weapons, drugs, and stolen goods from some of these areas.


During the police’s crackdown on criminal elements in Baldia’s Ittehad Town, three suspects – Amin, Muhammad Arif, and Noor Muhammad – were taken into custody. Weapons and contraband were recovered from the arrestees, who were reportedly involved in various crimes.


Police also conducted operations in Orangi Town’s Iqbal Market – during which target killer Asif and street criminal Naimatullah were arrested – and recovered weapons as wells as contraband. Asif confessed to killing a shopkeeper in Ittehad Town.


In Liaquatabad and North Nazimabad, three other suspects – Muhammad Noman (nicknamed Nomi), Imran, and Rahim Bakhsh – were taken into custody by police, which also recovered weapons, stolen goods, and a motorcycle during the operation.


In addition, the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) in an operation in the city’s suburbs arrested Bashir Ahmed – a criminal wanted by Larkana Police Station – for murder, attempted murder, kidnapping for ransom, land-grabbing, among numerous other crimes.


Ahmed had killed 18-year-old Yasir in 2016 for not paying extortion money and had since absconded.
