The confirmed reports of Clifton Area is that few armed men tried to kidnap a girl and the when the Security Guards on duty open fired on the armed men, they have left a Government number plate car behind and ran away from the scene.

The other confirmed report is that from morning till evening total 17 people have been killed in Karachi until 8pm today which also include the dead bodies of those unknown people whose dead bodies were found in the gunny bags.

The astonishing thing is that the terrorists first put alive person in the gunny bag and after tieing the gunny bag, they fire several shots on it. The person in the gunny bag can neither have the chance to run away, nor one can stop his bleeding, nor people come to know that some injured person is lying on the street and no ambulance can be called to take the injured person to the hospital.
