KARACHI, Oct 23: Two member of the Ahmadi community, a policeman and two brothers were among at least eight people gunned down in different parts of the city on Tuesday.

Police said the two Ahmadis were shot dead in the night in Sector 8 within the remit of the Saeedabad police station, where Abdul Bashir Ahmed, 70, the owner of a small general store, was targeted by assailants riding a motorcycle.

Shortly afterwards and a few streets away, gunmen barged into the clinic of Dr Raja Abdul Hameed, 50, shot him dead at point-blank range, and escaped.

“It appears that both killings were carried out by the same suspects riding a motorcycle,” acting DIG-West Amir Farooqui told Dawn. Both victims belonged to the Ahmadi community, he added.

Police said spent bullet casings of a 9mm pistol were found at both crime scenes. They said the two suspects were wearing helmets.Following the killings tension gripped the locality.

A spokesman for the Ahmadi community, Saleemuddin, told Dawn that both victims were members of the community and both killings took place in close proximity.

He recalled that last Friday an Ahmadi family was targeted by suspects in the same area of Baldia Town.

He expressed concern over the rampant killing of members of the Ahmadi communuity. The spokesman said so far at least nine members of the community had been killed in targeted attacks in the city.
