KARACHI: A youth was shot dead in Ibrahim Hyderi in the early hours of Friday morning, police said.

They added that 20-year-old Ali Raza was sitting along with his friends in Juma Goth when three gunmen riding a motorcycle attacked and killed him.

The victim was an electrician by profession and hailed from Larkana.

Ibrahim Hyderi SHO Ahmed Shaikh said that they had got some clues as to the identity and motive of the killers and added that the murder might be motivated by personal enmity.

Teenager killed

A teenager was strangled after a sexual assault in Orangi Town on Friday, the Mominabad police said.

They added that the body of 18-year-old Adil Khan was recovered from a closed office of the Union Council-11 near Wajid Shaheed Chowk.
