Double homicide: PIB Colony survivor tells police killer called himself Ahmed Ali

Uzma registers FIR, manhunt gets underway.

KARACHI: The sole survivor of the PIB Colony murders, 32-year-old Uzma, has been discharged from hospital and has recorded her statement with the police.

“I am Ahmed Ali and I will kill you,” she told the police, quoting the prime suspect as saying to the terrified trio before shooting them on Tuesday morning. The main target was Muttahida Qaumi Movement sector member Mansoor Mukhtar. But her husband Masood died later at hospital. She was shot twice in the right leg.

Uzma has now become the complainant in the double homicide and registered FIR No. 84/12 at the PIB Colony police station. She has nominated Ahmed Ali Magsi and two unidentified men.

The controversial Magsi is said to be linked to the banned Peoples Amn Committee. He has been accused of other killings, especially of MQM men in PIB Colony since last year after his 18-year-old brother Zulfiqar was gunned down allegedly by them in the same neighbourhood. The PAC has said that they do not have anything to do with Ali.

In her statement, Uzma, who has two children, said that they were sleeping at 4:35am. She woke up feeling that someone had come into the house. They woke her husband and dragged him out of the room where he was joined by Mansoor, her brother-in-law. Then one of the three men said he was Ahmed Ali before spraying them with bullets.

ASI Rana Ajmal recorded Uzma’s statement and said that they were verifying whether the culprit really was Ahmed Ali.

At least half a dozen suspects were apprehended in raids on Lyari, Liaquatabad and Abul Hassan Ispahani road on Wednesday. The residences of PAC men, Uzair Jan Baloch, Taj Mohammad and Mullah Nisar, were also raided.

Due to the outbreak of violence, the Karachi Transport Ittehad (KTI) called its people off the roads. “It will be difficult to run vehicles on Thursday as the situation is going to get worse,” said KTI’s Saad Mohammad Afridi.

Unfortunately I am part of a baighairat nation ... shame on all the writers on this thread who are questioning this womans credibility and making fun for the fact that was that guy Ahmed Ali or not ....I wonder how these people would have reacted if they would have been shot twice in their legs ... Peoples Amn comitte the whole world knows that is run by that terrorist Zulfiqaar mirza. I wonder ppl can find and look for terrorists here and there when a man and his party ppl, run here and there with guns ... say themselves that they spread arms amongst ppl and they are said nothing .. starange ppl , strange country

@Maulana Tharra: SO you think after her husband died in front of her she had enough senses to fabricate a story to support MQM cause ! I guess the ppl like you support the black sheeps of your community and eventually every community had to resort to their black sheeps for their protection .... If he was ahmed ali ! he should be caught and punished to death ! same goes with any other party.community including MQM, ANP or PPP, if their ppl are involved in killings they should be punished for life !
