KARACHI: A prominent leader of the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) survived an assassination attempt on late Sunday night after his motorcade was attacked near Abbas Town, at Abul Hasan Asfahani road.
Convoy of Maulana Aurangzeb Farooqui, the chief of the ASWJ Karachi chapter, was attacked by the unknown men but he remained unharmed.
No casualty was reported.
Attackers fled after the exchange of fire with the security guards of the ASWJ leader.
The ASWJ spokesperson said that despite several requests after receiving multiple threats, government has not provided any security to the Maulana.
At least six people were killed in the attack targeting the motorcade of Farooqui in the same neighbourhood in December last year.
