Karachi: Target Killing returns as the city collects 8 dead bodies

Karachi: (Friday, January 06, 2012) Following the past suit, peace in Karachi did not last longer this time either. The wave of terror is all over again in the city as the target killings caused eight lives yesterday which included
two Awami National Party leaders, two activists of Muttahida Qaumi Movement and four others.

As the killing spree on part of two major communities in the economic hub of Pakistan resumed, clashes between them took place in Metroville II and Orangi Town. Besides deaths, the clashes caused ten passerby to sustain injuries.
Five armed men barged into the house of Saeed Ahmed, the 30-year-old vice-president of ANP in Metroville ward and shot him dead.

The guards of the deceased, after hearing the fire shots, rushed to the spot and opened fire on the assailants, killing one of them while four others managed to flee from the scene.

Activists and leaders of the ANP lodged a protest over the death of their party man and accused their political rivals of being involved in the murder. Some people resorted to aerial firing in Metroville and Bara Board areas and forced traders to shut their
businesses. Two motorcycles were also torched.

The protest later turned into a clash between two communities in which four passersby received bullet wounds. The injured were taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where their conditions were stated to be out of danger. Contingents of police and Rangers managed
to bring the situation in the area under control.

This was the second ANP leader killed in a week. Another ANP leader, Furqan Khan, 42, had been killed in Pak Colony on Monday afternoon. Meanwhile, two activists of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement were shot to death in Orangi Town on Thursday.

A clash took place between two communities in the area, resulting in the injury to six passersby. Unidentified people riding a motorcycle opened fire on Habib, 25, and his friend, Maqsood, also 25, outside their houses in Orangi

They were taken to Qatar Hospital in a critical condition where they died. According to the police, the deceased were activists of the MQM.
