The Superhighway in Karachi has been opened for traffic after the protesters who were blocking the road dispersed peacefully after negotiations with the Malir SSP.
A large crowd of people had blocked the Superhighway for two hours to protest against the death of a young man who was killed in the crossfire between the police and suspects.
The protesters, comprising the boy’s family and local residents, also brought the victim’s body to the protest.
The SSP assured the protesters that whoever was involved in the incident will be punished. It is yet unclear who shot the young man.
The officer said the police had conducted a raid on a drug den, during which a shootout began between the police and suspects.
