At the time of the incident, a dance party was taking place at the residence of Nasir. Two groups clashed at the entrance of the house, and a scuffle broke out over who would enter the premises first. The groups opened fire at each other, killing six people and injuring nine others.

According to District Superintendent Police (DSP) Gizri Zameer Abbasi, the dead have been identified as Taleh Bugti, Iqbal, Kamran, Moon and Joseph. One girl was also killed in the incident. Her name could not be verified, but she was referred to as Bunty in the police report.

The injured include Zeeshan Ziauddin, Zaid Fazl, Faraz Ameer, Irfan Adnan, Qamar, Shahbaz, Bilal and Essa.

The police reached the area 30 minutes after the firing occurred, and confiscated equipment from the premises. This included lights, liquor, the the DJ’s equipment.

Police also confiscated arms and ammunition from the premises. According to evidence found at the site, police said that 9MM pistols, Kalashnikovs and SMGs were used by the groups during the firing incident.

Three cars have also been impounded by the police.

The police has taken the owner of the house for questioning, and are searching for Arif Roger, the main accused in the incident.

    What’s so sad about it??? “Those who live by the sword, die by the sword.” This kid-Bugti was a manifestation of the upper elite drunk with power and looted money showing their muscles by shoving and harassing common folks in a lawless land with no security. Stories about his stealing cars and hard-muscling people around the neighborhood were well known. Shame on his father for not keeping him under control while he lived.

    Do not confuse this incident with the legitimate aspirations of the Baluch people. If we love Pakistan we must support the Baloch and love them. They are our brothers. Recommend

    We should not worry and make comments as this is feudal and sardars class with countless money, fond of drinks, drugs, dams, dancing, double cabins/land cruisers. Carrying most sophisticated arms and Killings are both their favourite hobbies. Ordinary citizens should keep their eyes closed, mouth and ears shut. Such killings will continue for long time to come as this culture is now being promoted in cities, all over Pakistan. May ALLAH, THE ALMIGHTY, give us sanity and sense as life is pious/precious, created by ALLAH, and should be respected and protected by every one, who-so-ever it belongs. I am very disturbed this morning as all these boys should be very healthy, bueatiful, brought up with lot of difficulties by their parents.Recommend

    It did not happen outside the house but inside. The police is lying to protect the tenants and all the guests in the house. Why is the police harassing the owner of the house when as per law it is the occupant who is responsible for the safety and security of the house under the lease?? If it happened outside the house then why is the police searching the owner?? That is like arguing that the Chief Minister of Sind is responsible for what happens on the streets of Karachi. And he is under law, so why is the police not arresting the Chief Minister. Who is Arif Roger?? The local Al Capone??Recommend

    There is no Islam there, its a country full of litter, filth, and just utter nonsense I can’t even put in words. People have no respect for each other or their surroundings, I was utterly horrified.

    In America one can be a much better Muslim and human being then you can in Pakistan, and I would have never guessed that.

    Its sad so many of the youth in Pakistan are trying to imitate and copy Western people, tsk tsk you people have no shame or honor and look like idiots, trust me you are not cool, and you will have to give account for your actions before GOD.

    Instead of cribbing over booze & parties. Just read for a moment how different does all what has happened makes any of you lot!! People died! Friends of mine. The injured Essa grew up in front of me, he is in critical condition. Pray for him, pray for his aging mother, who was crying uncontrollably. Atleast take time to read Surah Fateha for the departed. It’s the least you can do! & for once quit judging people from where you stand please. If someone here was harassed by a feudal or wasn’t able to attend such an event in their lifetimes it gives none of you the right to bitch about someone who has passed away. What talk of muslims? Pray for the departed soul(s) & their families. It’s the least you can do instead of fighting over who will get the bigger bone!!

    *p.s. I carry weapons, drive a tinted land cruiser, have security. But, atleast pray for those departed. May Allah forgive their sins, give their families patience to bear their loss & give the rest of us the brains to not if mourn the loss of another or share their grief but, atleast pray for those gone from this world to the hereafter. Amen. Recommend

    Sorry to learn that such an incident happened in the area where elite are residing.

    In dance parties only stags are invited This is a horrible example set last night for all such parents who do not care about their young kids and give them money, cars and security guards to do whatever they want to do.

    It is an established fact that when children are given unlimited money with powers, they become answerable to none including the police and their parents.

    In such cases police also become helpless. If police warn the nasty kids, they are called by their parents and higher-ups to leave the kids alone or face dire consequences.

    According to the reports, the two groups were from Bugti and Pagara families.

    The responsibility lies on the shoulders of the deceased and injured kids and their parents as well as on the society.

    Gun is power and power is gun, which when used kill or injured the people facing the gun.

    The society should come forward to eradicate the menace of gun culture and hold the parents responsible giving unlimited money, powers, guns and body guards to their kids. Recommend

He has not been able to bring one iota of a positive change in the courts of this land. Perhaps he should resign first before ordering resignations of other officials who were forced out due to their institutions failure.

I don’t feel bad for the bugti who died but I feel bad for people who had nothing to do with the fight and were at the wrong place at the wrong time.

Since this story has all the classic elements booze, chick’s, and guns and a somewhat infamous local personality, everyone wants to wrap themselves into the story. FYI people just because you put your full name and in some cases your address on here, you still are not invited to the next party, and just cause you saw some dude with guards in a black land cruiser while you and your group of all dudes got ice cream at boat basin, don’t mean that you are friends with him. The comment section of this story is so much more interesting than the story itself. It shows me the real insecurities and issues that you all are carrying around. Every one wants to be the big dog, and trust me I have been and seen my share of them. The lesson here is that there is always a bigger dog out there.

    People in Balochistan have been supressed for a long time. Relatively speaking, they are in a much worse condition then people in Sindh, Punjab or KP. I am an urdu-speaking karachiite but I know how their rights have been neglected. And this is not just Federation, but also Baloch sardars who have been getting their under-the-table share and shedding crocodile tears.Recommend

    @Salman:

    We love and support our brothers. any grieviances they have must be addressed immediatly. however the root cause of their deprivation is your sardar/ nawab system which effectively emans that they are deprived of their basic rights. stories of Nawab Akbar Bugti shooting people for no reason (as he himself admitted) are quite rampant. The Baloch should declare indepednence from these sardars who fleece the life out of their people.

    Having said that, if the Baloch or anybody else talksabout independence than that is treason and there can be only one punishment for that.Recommend

    I read a news article recently regarding misappropriation of 500 million rupees from the interior ministry in lieu of arms licenses. The ruling elite’s utter disregard for the value of human life has come back to haunt them.
    Unfortunately I do not feel for any of those killed (except for any innocent bystanders) and hope that this is just the tip of the iceberg. It’s about time this policy of arms licence hand-outs comes back to bite our rulers in the a**Recommend

    The real story goes by like this, there is this guy butt who tried to stop this Bugti guy from entering the premises of the party, and pointed a gun on his *bugtis chin, on seeing this the all ready guards of Talhe bugti opened fire at the butt’s, and on the contrary result butt opened fire on taley shoulder from close range one bullet got through his body and on got stuck in his spinal cord which immediety sent him in the state of coma, later the guards sprayed the complete bullets from their automatic weapon on that butt and his friends, and guards, when his taley bugti’s other brother inside got to know of it he screamed and started shooting people inside first target was the Dj sabby a well known dj who lost his life, later on he killed alot of people inside and fled the scene.Recommend

    None of you guys know what actually happened. Even the Reports published here are all stupid. No one here knows what,why and where this all Happened. I was with Taleh when all this happened, From the start to the Ending. Reports here say That we were not allowed to go inside and we clashed..but as a matter of a Fact we were INVITED to the party and we were allowed inside without ANY trouble, Infact we were given a VIP lounge to sit in. If Taleh’s Guards were Inside with the SMG’s and AK-47 It was Impossible for anyone to actually even touch him. Just make Sense. There were no guards at the time he was Shot. They came 5 minutes after. Please guys stop your blabbering when you don’t know the facts. He was not even fighting..sigh..May Allah Forgive his sins..Ameen.Recommend

    Akbar Bugti led his family sons to believe they were ‘super sardars,’ They had almost everything they wanted in this life but sadly lacked two important human qualities, humility and equality.’ Now the scions have gone and the remaining should observe the love for humanity. Salams.Recommend

    Ahmed, i dont think you have a right to make comments about Pakistan when you (and people like you) have done nothing to contribute and to make it better. Its very easy to move abroad and then blog about all the issues. So please stay within your precious little bubble and dont let stories such as this disturb ur peace. We will manage without you.Recommend
