KARACHI: At least three people were killed and one injured when unidentified armed men opened fire at an eatery in Karachi late on Friday, Express News reported.

According to SHO Irfan Ahmed armed assailants in a car opened fire at the victims as they were sitting at a restaurant near Maskan in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Karachi.

The deceased include two brothers Talib Ahmed and Kashif Ahmed. The third victim, identified as Shahid, was reportedly related to the other two victims.

Reportedly the deceased were linked to the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamat (ASWJ).

Deceased and injured persons were moved to the nearby Patel Hospital in Gulshan-e-Iqbal.

The attack comes a week after the Supreme Court expressed some satisfaction with the ongoing targeted operation in Karachi, violence once again spiraled out of control on December 3.

A total of 14 people had lost their lives — a majority of them killed merely for belonging to one sect or the other.
