Pakistan: ‘Sectarian killing’: Govt official gunned down in Gulberg

By Riaz Ahmad

PESHAWAR, (Tribune Express):

Khawaja Imran Ali, a sub-division officer of Town II, was killed and his son Raza Ali critically injured after unidentified men on a motorcycle opened fire at them in Izzat Khan Chowk, Gulberg on Wednesday.

Raza told the police while being treated in hospital that his father was killed on the spot and  the culprits managed to escape.

The police said the attack had sectarian motives as Khawaja belonged to a Shia family.

On February 8, senior Shia lawyer Advocate Malik Jarar Hussain was shot dead on Gulbahar Road while on his way to drop his children to school. He was also a council member and former vice-chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa chapter. The killers have not yet been arrested.

Sarfarz Hussain Jafri was kidnapped from Rahatabad area in the limits of Tehkal police station on Wednesday. Jafri too, belonged to a Shia family.

“The man was on a morning walk in Rahatabad near his house when he was kidnapped by armed men in an Alto,” said a police official, adding the police believed it was an act of sectarian violence.
