Sindh IGP Mushtaq Mahar also took notice of the firing incident and has summoned a report from SSP East.
In another firing incident, a man was killed in the city’s central district on Saturday.
The police have expressed their suspicion that the incident was not a random mugging but a target-killing as the culprits did not snatch the belongings from the slain.
According to the details in the case shared by the police, Bashir was associated as a driver with an online ride-hailing service who they suspect might have been followed and killed in a targeted bid as his belongings remained on the scene.
