KARACHI: In a new spate of violence in Karachi, the wife and daughter of Balochistan MPA Mir Bakhtiar Domki were shot dead near Gizri flyover early Tuesday morning. The deceased were also the sister and niece of Baloch Republican Party (BRP) leader Baramdagh Bugti.
“A black-coloured Toyota car, with the victims on board, was parked outside a house when two men riding on motorcycles opened fire on the car,” said Superintendent of Police Clifton Tariq Dharejo, while talking to The Express Tribune.
“The victims were on their way home after attending a family wedding,” he added. The driver was also killed in the incident.
Eyewitnesses said that the assailants had circled the area once or twice before attacking their target, and fled after the attack.
The bodies were shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Complex (JMPC) after the incident.
Domki, who is a grandson of Nawab Akbar Bugti, belongs to Sibi.
Police believe that the incident could be a case of target killing based on personal enmity. They are investigating the incident.
Domki, while talking to Express News, said that they [his family] do not expect justice from the government of Sindh and that all it could do was form a few judicial committees.
“They used to kill the men of our family, now they have started killing our women as well,” he said. “We have been sacrificing for our country, and will continue doing so.”
