    FC soldier shoots prayer leader dead


    Karachi

    With the grisly images of a Pakistan Rangers man shooting young Sarfaraz Shah in cold blood still fresh in the memory of citizens, another case of an extrajudicial killing by another paramilitary force emerged on Thursday.

    This time it was a Frontier Constabulary jawan that gunned down the Peshimam of a mosque near the Hospital Chowrangi of Muhammadi Colony in Landhi.

    The incident, which left four others injured, took place after a trivial matter escalated into a hearted argument between an FC soldier and the administration of a madrassa.

    SDPO Quaidabad Abdul Fateh told The News that FC soldier named Khurshid was heading for duty while dressed in civilian attire. When he reached the Madina Dar-ul-Quran, where construction work was taking place, some building material fell on his clothes and soiled them. This resulted in Khurshid getting into an argument with the madrassa administration.

    The FC soldier called his colleagues, who reached the scene in a mobile unit. As soon as the paramilitaries jumped out of the van, they started beating officials of the madrassa administration.

    According to the police official, a madrassa student witnessed the scuffle taking place and intervened by trying to snatch one of the weapons carried by the FC men. One of the soldiers saw the student going for the gun and opened fire.

    The gunshots resulted in injuries to five people, including the 25-year-old Peshimam of Madina Dar-ul-Qurran Muhammad Rahim, Ali Zaman, 20, Shafaqat, 35, Sher Jan, 40 and Zubair Khan, 32.

    Upon hearing the shots, locals rushed to the scene and saw the victims lying in pools of blood. After being called to the scene, a mobile unit from the Quaidabad police station were rushing the injured to hospital in a critical condition when the Peshimam, Muhammad Raheem, succumbed to his wounds.

    Later, locals and students of the madrassa blocked the National Highway and surrounded the Quaidabad police station, demanding justice. SHO Quaidabad Nasir Mashwani claimed that the angry mob also torched a police kiosk in the area.

    Following a complaint from the madrassa administration, the police registered a case against the FC personnel. Last year, Rangers personnel shot a young man named Sarfaraz Shah in cold blood at the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park in the Clifton area. Shortly after Shah breathed his last, the murder was shown on major television channels as a cameraman from a private network managed to capture the incident.

    The brutal slaying of the 22-year-old sent shockwaves throughout the country and prompted calls for withdrawal of paramilitary soldiers from the city.

    This event can have far reaching consequences.
