ISLAMABAD: A volunteer American cardiologist was shot dead near Chiniot on Monday, a member of his Ahmadi community said.
Mehdi Ali had taken his five-year-old son and a cousin to a graveyard at dawn to pray when he was shot, said Salim ud Din, spokesman for the Ahmadi community.
“He came here just one or two days ago to work at our heart hospital, to serve humanity and for his country,” said Salim. “Two persons came on motorbikes. They shot 11 bullets in him.”
He is survived by a wife and three young sons, said Din.
“We are waiting for an application from the family after which we will start investigations,” said local police officer Ahmed Ali.
