Karachi: (HRNW) In what appeared to be another incident of lack of policing skills, the Karachi cops on Tuesday opened fire on a motorcyclist in order to stop him at a makeshift interception barricade, ARY NEWS reported.
Narrating the incident, the police said that they asked a motorcyclist to stop during snap checking at MA Jinnah Road but he refused to do so and tried to deceive the cops by speeding up the two-wheeler.
“The cops opened fire towards the ground to stop the man, resulting in a bullet hitting him,” they said adding that the police shifted him to a hospital for treatment.
The family claimed that the injured-Sharafat- went shopping with his friends. “He was injured due to the indiscriminate firing of policemen,” they blamed.
Taking notice of the incident, Inspector General of Police (IGP) Sindh Dr. Kaleem Imam sought a complete report into the incident from the concerned Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP).
He further summoned details into what action was taken from the police after the incident.
