Karachi: Two hurt in exchange of fire in Sohrab Goth

Reported by Maryum Razzaq

Staff Report

KARACHI: Two people, an ambulance driver and a TV reporter, were injured on Sunday in firing between two armed groups in Karachi’s Sohrab Goth area, SAMAA reported.

Officials said two groups clashed outside Edhi morgue at Sohrab Goath when armed men of one of the groups came to receive a body from the morgue.

As a result, sources said, a reporter of a private television and driver of Edhi ambulance sustained bullet injuries.

Police parties arrived at the scene and exchanged fire with the armed groups, resorting to aerial firing and tear gas shells on gunmen which disappeared in the streets.

Police and Rangers vehicles were also fired upon; however no causalities took place.

Shops, markets and petrol filing pumps were also closed in the area following the exchange of fire between police and miscreants.

Talking to SAMAA, IG police Fayyaz Laghari claimed that the satiation has been brought under control. He said miscreants were bent upon fueling sectarian hatred to decentralize Muslims ahead of the month of Muharram.

He, however, admitted that police have failed to curb the violence despite ban on pillion riding in the city imposed on Thursday.

Earlier today, three people fell prey to the violence. They were shot dead in Karachi’s Orangi Town locality near Islam Chowk. A father and his son were among the deceased, police said.

The ongoing violence and drive-by assaults have claimed some 27 lives over the past 24 hours despite ‘targeted’ operations by police and Rangers in restive parts of the city. — SAMAA

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam

Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
