KARACHI, Dec 3: A teacher of a seminary was among at least seven people shot dead in Karachi on Monday.

The killing of Mufti Mohammad Ismail off Abul Hasan Ispahani Road triggered violence in parts of Gulshan-i-Iqbal and at least five vehicles were torched and many others damaged in arson and armed attacks that brought life to a standstill in various areas.

Men on a motorcycle intercepted Mufti Ismail when he was going to Madressah Ahsanul Uloom in the morning and shot him in the head, face and chest.

Charged youths carrying sticks and bricks took to the Rashid Minhas Road, University Road and Allama Shabbir Ahmed Usmani Road, blocked traffic and attacked vehicles and shops.—Staff Reporter
