EXCLUSIVE: Prime suspect in the ‘Do Darya‘ Sea View killing case Khawar Burney Confessional Statement video.
Khawar Burney Confessional Statement
Khawar Burney said that he opened fire on the Mercedes after the car hit his Vigo.
“I wanted to aim at the tyre but the Mercedes turned and the bullets hit the car,” said Burney.
“Everything happened accidentally.”
The Judicial Magistrate (South), earlier today, gave a two-day physical remand of the prime suspect in the case.
Authorities recovered late Sunday night the third car alleged to have been involved in the incident that claimed the life of one person and injured one other as the vehicle was fired upon.
The deceased, identified as 18-year-old Zafir, was laid to rest earlier today in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA).
In an earlier statement to the police, Burney had said he tried to stop the ‘Mercedes car’ when he witnessed the accident, engaging in aerial firing in order to signal it to halt.
As he fired, his pistol moved upwards by mistake, and the bullets hit the people inside the car.
Dr Abdul Rahim — the motorcycle rider — has disassociated himself from the incident, saying he doesn’t know either Burney or the deceased.
Eyewitnesses said four people were on their way in a car from Do Darya in DHA’s Phase 8 when they reportedly hit a sports bike from behind and sped away.
A few moments later, their car was chased down, stopped by a double-cabin vehicle — which was escorting the injured biker — and was fired upon by people from inside.
Police said that after allegedly firing at least nine times at the car, the men in the vehicle climbed out of and beat up the passengers.
Police immediately launched a search for the vehicle and assailants, while a forensic team collected evidence from the site, according to officials.
Later, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) for South informed that four suspects had been arrested from Khalid bin Waleed Road while the pick-up was also seized.
Police claimed that they have confiscated the weapon and car used in the incident. The prosecutor has requested the court to include terrorism charges against the suspect.
Meanwhile, in a recently-surfaced CCTV video, it is seen that the prime suspect Khawar along with his accomplices in two other cars was speeding away after the murder.
Police said that the suspect hid at his Allama Iqbal Road residence. Authorities also recovered weapons from the detainees and filed a case in this regard.
Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah took notice of the incident and also sought a report from the additional inspector general of police.
‘Deceased was hit by two bullets’
The investigating officer in the case said the deceased, Zafir, died of wounds from two bullets.
The vehicle he was riding was shot from the left side. The bullets hit Zafir in the chest and hand, the officer said.
