Karachi: Abdul Ghafoor Qadri, father of twin brothers Haider and Jamal who were attacked on their way to a university in Karachi, has urged Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry to take suo motu notice of the attack that killed one of his sons and left other severely injured.
The twin brothers were going to the University of Karachi on January 2, 2013 when unknown gunmen attacked them as they stopped at a tyre puncture shop in Agra Taj Colony of Lyari. Haider survived but Jamal died on the spot.
The News Tribe correspondent reported that Haider’s condition is very serious as the gunshot caused him severe internal bleeding and destroyed one side of his entire buccal cavity, his jawbone and teeth.
Dr Qadri, a senior resident medical officer at Lyari General Hospital, said the target killers took his last support of life by killing his sons.
He said though police had registered an FIR of the incident but even after six days they have failed to trace the culprits.
Dr Qadri appealed CJP Iftikhar Chaudhry to treat his sons’ case in the same way he did for Shahzeb Khan, a police officer’s son who was killed in Karachi last month.
Mother of the twin brothers said after losing one of her sons Jamal, she had been praying for the recovery of Haider, who had been battling for life in a hospital. She said her sons had no enmity with anyone and they were going to take paper when the attackers shot them.
Police said an investigation into the incident is under way and they will gather more information from Haider once he is recovered.
