Truck Carrying 30 Sacrificial Goats Stolen at Gunpoint in Karachi Ahead of Eid ul Adha

Karachi: In a daring daylight heist, a truck loaded with sacrificial goats was hijacked by armed robbers near Kamran Chowrangi in Karachi’s Gulistan-e-Johar area, just days before the Eid ul Adha festival. The police reported that four suspects on a motorcycle intercepted the truck, which was carrying at least 30 goats.

According to the police, two of the suspects forcibly removed the driver from the vehicle at gunpoint, then drove off with the truck and its valuable cargo. The goats were being transported from Hyderabad to Gulistan-e-Johar by trader Abdul Manan, who has since filed a first information report (FIR) to initiate an investigation into the theft.

This incident is part of a troubling trend of livestock robberies that escalate as Eid ul Adha approaches, a time when Muslims globally celebrate by sacrificing cattle such as goats, cows, bulls, and camels. Similar thefts have been reported in recent weeks, with citizens losing their sacrificial animals to armed thieves.

In Lahore, two separate incidents saw robbers targeting sacrificial goats. In Samanabad, a young boy was robbed of two goats at gunpoint, while in Nishtar Colony, a group of muggers stole a goat from a citizen, leading to the immediate arrest of one suspect by police, though his accomplice managed to escape.
