Custodian of Imambargah Fatally Shot by Robbers
The custodian of an imambargah was tragically gunned down in Korangi, Karachi, just one week after his son was also murdered. According to the police, Safdar Hussain, 60, was killed by unidentified assailants near Sughra Imambargah in Korangi No 4 late on Tuesday night.

Despite the efforts of doctors at the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, he succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds to the head.
