During the investigation of the murder of former MNA Ali Raza Abidi is underway, the guard of the slain leader’s residence has been taken into the custody, Senior Superintendent (SSP) of district South Karachi, Syed Pir Muhammad Shah, said.
While talking to media on Wednesday, the SSP South informed that the senior leader of MQM-Pakistan was attacked right in front the of his house on Tuesday night by two assailants, meanwhile, the security guard at the gate rushed inside as the assailant opened fire at Syed Ali Raza Abidi.
The security guard belongs to Dera Ghazi Khan and was hired 2-3 months ago for the job, the SSP further added.
Last night, when former lawmaker of Mutahhida Quami Movement – Pakistan (MQM-P) was killed, the police official said, as per Abidi’s usual routine, he had reached home earlier than his daily schedule of coming back from office.
“It is too early to confirm whether there was a political, religious or a personal reason behind the assassination,” Shah stated, adding that the Abidi’s family did not express any suspicion either about the nature of the incident.
