KARACHI: A motorcyclist on Monday got wounded after being hit by a vehicle of the United States consulate in Karachi, ARY News reported.
A female official of the US consulate was driving the car when this accident took place in front of PIDC building. People surrounded the car which was later brought to a police station for investigation and the foreign woman travelled back to the consulate in another vehicle.
DIG South Javed Odho said the injured bike rider has been identified as a Pakistan Navy employee, who was whisked to the hospital for medical treatment.
On April 7 this year, another US diplomat Colonel Joseph ran a red light and rammed into a motorcycle killing a Pakistani civilian. He was let go by police officials after the accident as he allegedly had diplomatic immunity from criminal prosecution.
The court said that the embassy official did not have complete immunity, and had sought a reply from the Interior Ministry to place him on the Exit Control List, however he was later flown out of the country.
