Zaman Town police station SHO Abbas Kolachi said that 27-year-old Mohammad Irfan was scrubbing his rickshaw outside his house when unidentified armed men shot a bullet at his head. The deceased man’s uncle, Mohammad Adil, rushed out of his house after hearing the gunshot and found Irfan’s body lying inside the rickshaw. Irfan died at the spot while the assailant managed to flee. The police were unable to confirm how many accomplices he had.
