Lyariites protest over extra-judicial killing

KARACHI: A large number of Lyari’s residents staged a protest demonstration against the extra-judicial killing of a teenager, outside Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Monday. The protesters chanted slogans against law enforcers and complained of being harassed on regular basis. They had also brought the dead body of the teenager along with them. A teenager, Junaid, 17, son of Muhammad Azeem, resident of Saifi Mohala Baghdadi, went missing earlier on August 16 during a raid by law enforcers in Baghdadi area. However, residents and relatives accused the law enforcers of abducting and killing him. On the occasion, a relative of the victim Muhammad Ijaz Baloch said that he was picked up from his residence during a raid. “Following day, we approached the law enforcer’s headquarters at People’s Football Ground to know his whereabouts but the law enforcers denied of picking up any person by such name,” he added. He further claimed that the slain teenager was working in a printing press in Gulbai area and had no criminal record. Meanwhile, Pasban Helpline leader Gul Muhammad Bhutto urged the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali, Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah and Governor Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad for a high level investigation.
