Retired army officer, son attacked in Karachi

KARACHI: A retired army man and his son were shot at and wounded in the city’s Gulshan-i-Iqbal area on Monday, police said.


Major (retd) Jamil Kiani and his son Jibran Kiani were severely injured when their car came under attack in Gulshan Block 13-D, said Superintendent Police Dr Fahad Ahmed.

Three assailants on two motorbikes opened fire on the former military man’s vehicle, leaving him and his son wounded.

Both were rushed to a nearby hospital as rescue and law enforcement personnel soon reached the site from where they recovered at least 14 bullet casings.

Kiani is involved in the construction business and had a land dispute with a builder in Gulistan-i-Jauhar, the SP said, adding that the attack “may be linked to the dispute”.
