KARACHI: A member of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s student wing Insaf Students’ Federation (ISF) was shot dead in Karachi on Sunday.
ISF member Dilawar Ali Awan was shot in the chest thrice by unknown armed men on Zamzama Street within the Clifton police area.
ISF Sindh President Alamgir Khan confirmed that Awan was an ISF member and said that his party has announced a day of mourning for his death.
However, the police stated that the victim was not affiliated with any political party or student organisation and was killed in a personal brawl.
“He was neither a member of any party nor he was killed in a targeted assassination,” SHO Asif Ali Jakharani told The Express Tribune.
“Before claiming his affiliation with the party, the PTI or ISF should have at least confirmed the nature of the incident,” Jakharani said. “I don’t think any party will claim someone who is killed over a call girl as its member.”
