KARACHI: Sporadic violence incidents continued in Karachi as three more people lost their lives overnight, media reported.
Police said two people were gunned down and another injured in a drive-by attack reported late night in Agra Taaj colony of Lyari, the hub of gang war elements.
The victims could not be identified.
A tortured body was recovered from Mirza Adam Khan road in the same Lyari locality, official said.
Despite police and Rangers’ month-long operation in violence-hit areas of Karachi, the fresh wave of targeted killings has claimed nearly 20 lives in three days, undermining government’s security plans for Muharram processions across the metropolis – which is plagued by killings on ethnic and sectarian grounds
