KARACHI: A man and a woman were killed in separate acts of firing on Friday. A young man, who has yet to be identified, was killed and another man, Abdul Ghaffar, was wounded in an exchange of fire between the Baba Ladla and Uzair Baloch groups in Lyari’s Nawa Lane area. The body has been taken to the Edhi morgue in Sohrab Goth after medico-legal formalities at Civil hospital. A 24-year-old pregnant woman, Zeenat Bibi, was killed inside her house in Gulshan-e-Maymar while her husband of seven months, Wazir Ali, was cleaning his gun, said SHO Mir Samad. Since Ali escaped after the shooting, the police are waiting for the complainants to register the case and start investigations. Meanwhile, a loud explosion was heard in Naseerabad, Gulberg, where unconfirmed reports claimed some men tried to attack a school van. SHO Chaudhry Shahid said it was most likely a firework explosion.
