KARACHI: The Director General of Pakistan Rangers, Sindh, has taken notice of the Shah Faisal Colony firing incident that killed a man when he failed to pull his car over on Tuesday.

A Rangers spokesman said late on Tuesday night that the Director General Rangers Sindh has ordered a court of inquiry and suspended the individual involved.

Express News reported that Rangers signalled Ghulam Haider to stop his car but he did not, over which the officials opened fire at him, killing him on the spot.

Haider’s car consequently collided with a motorcycle, injuring the rider.

Police said that no criminal record of Haider was found in any police station and no weapons were recovered from him.

The residents of the area protested in front of Shah Faisal Colony Police Station but were soon dispersed earlier in the day.

The suspended individual has been detained, the Rangers spokesman further pointed out.

An investigative board has been tasked to find out the facts and submit report immediately, it was further stated.
