KARACHI: The suspects involved in the murder of Zafir Khan during a road rage incident near Karachi’s Sea View beach were presented before the court of judicial magistrate (south) today.
The identification parade of the suspects is under way.
At first, the identification parade of suspect Abdul Rehman was conducted where three prosecution witnesses pointed him out.
In the previous hearing, the judicial magistrate sent the prime suspect, Khawar Burney, to jail on judicial remand until December 18.
Authorities arrested the central character behind the shooting later that day and have so far impounded a couple of vehicles in connection with the episode.
The investigation officer pleaded the court to extend the suspect Khawar Burney’s physical remand but the plea was dismissed. The judge also ordered the submission of the charge-sheet of the case at the next hearing. The investigation officer informed the court that the prime accused, Burney, had 11 accomplices, including a woman.
Eyewitnesses said four people were on their way on Sunday, Dec 3, in a car from Do Darya in DHA’s Phase 8 when they reportedly hit a sports bike from behind and sped away.
A few moments later, their car was chased down, stopped by a double-cabin vehicle — which was escorting the injured biker — and was fired upon by people from inside.
Police said that after allegedly firing at least nine times at the car, the men in the vehicle climbed out of and beat up the passengers.
