KARACHI - Veteran journalist Aftab Alam was killed on Wednesday when gunmen fired shots at his vehicle in Karachi, in what police described as the second targeted attack on a journalist in Karachi in the last 24 hours.

According to Deputy Inspector-General (West) Feroz Shah, Alam was targeted outside his residence in 11-C area of Karachi when he was leaving to pickup his children from school. Shah said that according to initial reports the incident appeared to have been properly planned as the two armed motorcyclists fired a single shot which hit Alam in the head, a signature method used by target-killers. The wounded journalist was taken to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. The medico-legal officer (MLO) at the Abbasi hospital confirmed Alam’s death. Alam had previously been associated with Geo News, and his death comes hours after gunmen attacked a Geo News DSNG van in Bahadurabad area, killing satellite engineer Arshad Ali Jafri and injuring the driver.

It was unclear if Alam’s killing had any possible link to the fatal targeted attack on journalists on Tuesday night. Police said that family members have so far not stated any enmities or threats prior to the murder. INP  Daily Times
