KARACHI: Armed muggers shot at and wounded two brothers upon resistance in Federal B. Area on early Tuesday morning, police said.

Jauharabad SHO Imran Afridi said Shahnawaz, 24, and Anas, 20, the two brothers, were looking after their sacrificial cow inside a tent near Sangam Ground when armed robbers emerged there, held them at gunpoint and demanded their cell phones.

Young Anas tried to run, but the robber opened fire on him. As a result, a bullet hit him in the leg and the same bullet hit his elder brother, Shahnawaz, and hurt him. The muggers rode away.

The wounded were shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where their condition was stated to be out of danger.

A security guard of a petrol pump, Asif, 45, was shot at and wounded by robbers when he resisted their robbery bid in a Korangi area on Tuesday morning.

Zaman Town SHO Zahid Lodhi said two armed men after getting their bike’s tank filled with fuel tried to snatch cash from the employee of the Parco filling station.

The employee put up resistance and in the meantime, guard Asif also challenged the robbers, who fired shots and fled with snatched cash. Asif suffered injuries and was moved to the JPMC for treatment.
