However, what impact this letter will leave on the legal matter vis-à-vis the firing incident is yet to be ascertained.

Akram’s car met with an accident on Karsaz Road near National Stadium. Following a row with the driver of the car, a 2002 Honda Civic, the private guard sitting with the driver fired at Akram’s car. Before police could arrive at the scene, the driver and his guards managed to flee. However, there were no casualties reported during the incident.

After the incident, Akram called the police helpline 15 and registered a complaint.


Ahmed Ata | 6 years ago | Reply The apology is for all the wrong reasons. Simply pathetic! This shows the arrogance of our servicemen.
Ahmed Shafique | 6 years ago | Reply Am I the only one who thinks that the General in question is a threat to the Safety of general public? Even if Wasim Akram refuses to press charges how can a person who tries to murder someone after hitting someones car be roaming free on the streets of Karachi?
