KARACHI: Six people were killed, including a two-year-old and a member of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ), in firing incidents across Karachi.

The victims were attacked by unidentified armed assailants near Kashmir Road, Sohrab Goth, Gulistan-e-Jauhar and New Karachi.

The former president of Karachi’s electronic market Muhammad Irfan, who was shot earlier this week, also succumbed to his injuries.

Sunni Tehreek Chief Sarwat Ijaz Qadri condemned the killing of the ASWJ member.

The ASWJ had earlier warned the government that it will stage a sit-in for an indefinite period of time if the men who have targeted the group’s workers are not arrested soon.

Combat extortion

Prime Minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, during his meeting with Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad and Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, asked the provincial government to devise a plan to combat extortion in Karachi, in collaboration with the city’s business community.

He called for appropriate measures to be taken against extortionists, target killers and other criminal elements.

The premier observed that police officials who failed to follow instructions should be removed immediately.
