Instead of politician, gunmen kill Pakistani medic
Islamabad, Jan 10 - Motorcyle-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 Wednesday, the Dawn reported 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 Tuesday night too, looking for the politician. (IANS)
