KARACHI - Khadim Hussain, son of central leader of Majlis-e-Wahadat-e-Muslimeen (MWM) Maulana Mirza Yousuf Hussain who is also member of Shia Action Committee, was gunned down in Nazimabad on Monday night. Police investigators believed that culprits involved in the assassination of MQM MPA Syed Raza Haider and various other Shia men were behind the killing of 37-year-old Khadim Hussain. He was gunned down near Shalimar Park within the limits of Nazimabad police station. The incident took place soon after the Khadim Hussain left the house located in the same area on a motorcycle. 'Armed men on a motorbike took advantage of the power failure in the locality and shot him several times, Ali Ahmer Jaffaria Alliance Pakistan (JAP) spokesman said. The deceased received multiple bullets in his head, chest and neck and died shortly after he was taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. As the news of his killing spread across the City, scores of Shia leaders, workers and relatives reached the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital and chanted slogans against the failure of the government and the banned religious outfits. Following the incident, tension and fear gripped various parts of the City especially Shia dominated areas including Incholi, Malir Jaffer Tayyar, Abbas Town and others where the routine and commercial life was suspended. The deceased hailed from Gilgit and was a father of three children. A passer-by was also wounded in the incident.
