A local leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf was injured and his
wife killed after a gun attack in Karachi late Wednesday, the police said.

Unidentified men opened fire on the vehicle of PTI Manghopir Circle Labour Division President Esa Khan near Afghan Basti.

District West Senior Superintendent of Police Suhai Aziz told SAMAA Digital
that Khan along with his wife Bakhtawar Khan and a six-year-old child had gone to Baqai Medical University Hospital for a checkup.

“On their way back from the hospital, armed bike riders opened fire on
their car,” Aziz said.

Khan sustained two bullets in his left arm, while his wife received a
gunshot wound to the head.

The PTI leader drove his car in injured condition and managed to reach Patel Hospital. Doctors performed a surgery on his wife Thursday afternoon but the 37-year-old succumbed to her injuries.

In his statement to the police, Khan said four armed men opened fire on
their car on their way back home. The assailants were armed with Kalashnikov assault rifles, he added.

A police team immediately reached the scene but it did not find any
circumstantial evidence, SSP Aziz said. The motive behind the attack has yet to be ascertained.
