Ranjhani was shot dead on Wednesday in Karachi’s Bhains Colony and left to die on a public street as people looked on. No one took him to the hospital or offered aid. When the police arrived, they took him to the police station instead of the hospital, where he succumbed to his wounds.

The man who shot him, Raheem Shah, says that Ranjhani was a thief and had been following him after he withdrew Rs3 million from a bank near Nursery. He said two men on a motorcycle intercepted him near the Bhains Colony turning, off the National Highway.
