KARACHI: A truck containing a consignment of sacrificial goats was allegedly hijacked by four armed men in Gulistan-i-Jauhar, police said on Wednesday.

They said that the truck carrying 30 goats was on its way from Hyderabad to Gulistan-i-Jauhar when the driver stopped the vehicle near Kamran Chowrangi to inquire about the address of his destination.

In the meantime, four suspects riding two motorbikes emerged there, held the driver at gunpoint, snatched his cash and cell phone and then took away the truck with the goats.

The victim Abdul Manan told the media that the estimated value of the looted sacrificial animals was around Rs1.5 million.
