KARACHI, Sept 26: A senior lawyer was shot dead in an attack in Nazimabad area of Karachi on Thursday that also left his lawyer son injured. Naimat Ali Randhawa, a former public prosecutor of Anti-Terrorism Court and leader of PML-N Sindh’s lawyer wing, and his son, Tauqeer Ali Randhawa, were going home when two gunmen on a motorcycle attacked them, said SSP Central Amir Farooqi.

They sustained injuries in the attack and were taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where Naimat Ali Randhawa was pronounced dead after brief treatment. His son was later shifted to a private hospital.

The SSP said Naimat Ali Randhawa received a single bullet on his head which proved fatal. However, his son sustained a bullet wound on his shoulder and his condition was stated to be out of danger.
