KARACHI: A 24-year-old man, Haider Aman, was shot dead near Gul Ahmed factory in the Quaidabad area on Saturday night, according to the area police.

Initially, the police said he sustained a fatal gunshot during jubilation firing at a wedding ceremony. However, area SHO Amin Khoso quoted the victim’s relatives as telling the police that he was killed over some personal enmity.

They claimed that he was asleep on the roof of his house when someone shot him dead and fled.

He was taken to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre where he was pronounced dead.

The officer said the investigators were waiting for the heirs to nominate the suspected killers.
