Unknown armed men driving a motorbike targeted Ghulam Akbar on Shahrah-e-Faisal and left him critically wounded.

Akbar was being admitted to a infirmary for medical assistance when he bought the farm along the path.

According to Akbar’s wife, who was with him at the time of the incident, he was hit in the brain.

Starting investigation revealed that a 9mm gun was employed in the attempt. The motif of the attack and other details are not known as yet.

Earlier in April, the driver of a Navy officer was shot dead in the metropolis.

The driver had five to six bullet wounds, making police officials suspect the incident was a targeted attack.

It was not open, yet, if the driver was the designated aim of the attempt or the Navy officer.
