The Malir SSP had said that the police nabbed two students, both aged 14, in the murder case. The teenagers shot the man dead just to make a video for TikTok, he revealed.
CCTV footage of the bizarre incident showed four youngsters on two motorcycles. Fazil Ali, one of the suspects, fired at Qamar Raza, the police said.
The murder weapon and a motorcycle had also been recovered from the detained teenagers.
