Godil attack case: Police fail to find any eyewitness


KARACHI: As critically injured Member National Assembly of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Abdul Rashid Godil, battles at a Karachi hospice, police failed to search any eyewitness of the attack, with no case registered so far.


“The assailants chose a desolate place to target him. This is why neither have we drawn their sketches nor found any eyewitness of the attack so far,” according to SP Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Abid Ali Qaimkhani.

Yesterday, four attackers on motorcycles opened fire on his car in Bahadurabad area, critically wounding him and killing his driver.

Police said bullet casings taken from the scene matched a 9mm pistol, adding that CCTV footage was being examined.

Godil was struck by five bullets to his head, jaw and chest. The MQM leader is still battling for his life at Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Liaquat National Hospital, as doctors say next 24 hours will be critical for him.

A panel of doctors will decide whether to take him off the ventilator so that he can start breathing with his own lungs, LNH spokesman Anjum Rizvi told reporters.

He said a team of doctors was monitoring his condition and trying to stabilise him.
