KARACHI: Unidentified armed men barged into a house in the Khokhrapar area of Muslimabad on Thursday night and killed three men, who were allegedly part of a narcotics ring, police said.

"Haji Muhammad Aslam, 45, Muhammad Nadeem and Anwar were killed. Their bodies have been taken to Jinnah hospital,” DSP Khokhrapar Faqarul Islam said. He added that the attack seemed to be the result of infighting between gangs.

“Aslam was wanted in different cases," the officer further revealed, adding the victims were all present at Aslam’s residence when they were attacked.

Jeay Sindh Quami Mahaz (JSQM) commenting on the incident said the murdered men were its activists. "They have been killed by Lyari gangsters," said Asif Baladi, JSQM’s general secretary alleged. "Different groups are being propped up against each other. This is not good for the city."

Really Baladi? You should have thought of that before you joined the thugs of JSQM.

Very sad indeed. Now Sindhi Nationalists are also being targeted in their own city Karachi. JSQM is one of the leading voice of Sindhi Nationalist Movement and they have pro-MQM stance but look what are they getting, dead bodies. Not at all good omen for Urdu-Sindhi Unity and overall for province. Media seems bit hesitant to point out fingers to real culprits behind this attack.
