A policeman was injured in a shooting in Karachi’s Landhi area, police said Tuesday.
Unidentified assailants opened fire on the policeman near Babar Market, according to the police. He was immediately shifted to a hospital.
Sindh IG Mushtaq Mahar has directed the Korangi SSP to ensure best medical treatment of the injured policeman and stay in touch with his family.
