A man was killed after unidentified men hurled a cracker at a shop in Karachi’s Sachal Goth area Wednesday, police said.

The deceased was identified as Malik Ashiq who was a retired Rangers inspector, according to SSP Sajid Sadozai. After an initial investigation, the incident looks like an act of terrorism, he said.
