KARACHI, April 2: Three people, including a worker of the Muhajir Quami Movement (Haqiqi), were killed on Wednesday in different parts of the city, witnesses and police said.

A leader of the MQM Haqiqi, Feroze Haider, told Dawn that the victim’s house was located in the same lane where party chief, Amir Khan, used to live. He added that the victim was targeted because he used to consort with Mr Khan’s former bodyguard, Asif.
