Firing in Defence Karachi kills five; hurts seven
KARACHI: At least five people have been killed including Talay Bugti, the grandson of late Nawab Akbar Bugti, and another seven injured in an incident of firing at a private gathering in a bungalow located in Defence Khayaban-e-Rahat area in Karachi late on Saturday, SAMAA reported.
Initial reports suggested that the Baloch leader Talal Bugti of Jamhori Watan Party (JWP) was also among dead. However, later it was confirmed by hospital sources that the killed man was Talay Bugti instead of Talal.
According to sources, the exchange of fire between the security guards after some arguments on conflicting points emerged during a dance party led to the killing.
Law enforcement agencies including police and rangers have converged to the crime site and kicked off investigations after placing strict cordon around the area.
Meanwhile, the dead bodies and the injured people have been shifted to a private hospital for autopsy and medical attainment respectively. SAMAA
