Earlier, in Karachi, initial investigation in the incident of a young man’s murder in Karachi’s Defence Housing Authority (DHA) area late on Saturday has revealed that it might be a case of personal enmity.

According to police officials, due to repeated reports of government vehicles being robbed from the area, an Anti-Car Lifting Cell (ACLC) mobile was found near the site of the incident.

According to reports, finding it suspicious, the ACLC officials tried to stop the car in which the young man was present but he did not stop and tried to escape.

In return, the officials opened fire on the car as a result of which the 22-year-old man died on the spot.
