The deceased, identified as Tahir, was riding a motorcycle along with his daughter when the street criminals on a motorcycle surrounded them in Allahwala Town of Korangi.
The CCTV footage showed the criminals trying to stop the citizens’ motorcycle on the road to loot the valuables. Later, they shot fire at the man’s leg over resistance.
Subsequent to going through the terrifying act by the armed robbers, the daughter was seen tearing up while sitting alongside her wounded father. It must be noted that before being shot by the robbers, the father was seen trying to save his daughter.
According to the police, the wounded citizen received a bullet in the leg. The injured father was immediately given medical treatment. By good fortune, his health condition is out of danger now.
