    One of the dead is my mom’s aunt’s brothers’ brother in law. He got shot dead at 7am when he was leaving for work. He just got married 7 days ago. He was 24 years old. He had no ties to any silly gangs or nothing. Just got married . . . just got shot in the head at point blank range. Two people on the bike just rode away. I don’t know anyone from any of the people I mentioned except my mum. Today I visited his house. His family went to Karachi immediately (Victim’s sister). His house, usually full of life was silent . . . Just know that each death or killing effects a huge amount of people. Whether they are related directly or indirectly. No words . . .
