A man was killed and others sustained injuries when the Karachi police personnel opened fire on them at II Chundrigar Road on Friday.
The victims had raised their hands after seeing the cops, but the policemen still fired shots at them. The victims were travelling on a bike when the police stopped them.
The police said the men were robbers, however, eyewitnesses claimed otherwise. The police party left the crime scene after the incident.
The dead was identified as Aslam and the injured was identified as Waqar. Body and the injured were rushed to a hospital.
Taking notice of the matter, Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) South Javed Akbar Riaz sought the detailed report of the incident. Three cops involved in the shootout were taken into custody. Further investigation into the matter was underway, he added.
Last year, a Karachi police cop kept filming a suspect, who writhed about in pain after being shot and injured in a “shootout” with police personnel in Qasba Colony, in lieu of shifting him to hospital.
