Instead of politician, gunmen kill Pakistani medico
Islamabad: Motorcycle-riding gunmen raided a clinic in Pakistan`s port city of Karachi looking for a politician, but on not finding him shot dead his octogenarian father, a `hakeem` who authored 40 books and was given the presidential award in 2001.
The attack took place in Federal B area on Wednesday, the Dawn reported on Thursday.
Police said the attackers failed to find the man`s son, a leader of the Jamaat-i-Islami, for the second consecutive day.
Two men riding a motorbike arrived at the clinic. One of them entered, looking for politician Mujahid Barkati, but, not failing him there, shot dead 87-year-old Hakeem Mehmood Ahmed Barkati, police said.
Police said the suspects had come to the clinic on Tuesday night too, looking for the politician.
