KARACHI: A citizen who was filmed showing-off a weapon from a moving vehicle in Clifton area of the city has approached the police, claiming he thought the motorcyclist was trying to loot him, ARY NEWS reported on Wednesday.
A video of the incident went viral in which a man from a moving vehicle was seen waving a weapon from his vehicle, threatening the motorcyclist.
Although no one approached the police for lodging a complaint into the incident, the authorities, however, began a search for the weapon-wielding man in the video.
