KARACHI: The lawyer of Ajmal Pahari, accused of killing more than one hundred people, was shot dead on Monday night. According to Sir Syed SP Iqbal Malik, Zia Alam was killed in a drive-by shooting in North Nazimabad.
Alam had gone to Sakhi Hassan to visit relatives and was standing at the gate with a cousin, Rehan. He was shot at least thrice and the police found four empty shells of a 9mm pistol. Pahari was acquitted in one case as Alam had argued that the prosecution had failed to produce any evidence linking his client to the offence. Alam was affiliated with the Pakistan Peoples Party.
