24-year-old shot dead during home invasion in Rawalpindi

A 24-year-old man was killed during a home invasion near Rawalpindi’s Khayaban-e-Sir Syed on August 22. 

He has been identified as Qasim Ali. He was laid to rest Friday night after the completion of his postmortem examination.

Ali’s uncle Tassawur Hussain said that the family had gone to attend a wedding and returned home late that night. Ali and his younger brother fell asleep on their bed and a few hours later, his brother woke up and saw a man standing beside the bed with a gun.

The robber panicked and tried to flee but in the meantime, Ali’s brother woke him up. Ali chased after the robber. When they were out of the house, the thief fired at Ali and then fled.

The case is being investigated by the Pir Wadhai police.
