Irshad Ranjhani was killed in Karachi on February 8 this year. Abdul Rahim Shah, the union council chairman of Bhains Colony is the key suspect.

“Rahim Shah, again opened fire at the wounded person, while he [Ranjhani] was being shifted to the hospital,” revealed the ambulance driver in a police statement on Tuesday.

“Ranjhani was shifted to the police station while he was still alive but wounded and bleeding. After 15 to 20 minutes at the police station, we left for the hospital,” he said.

Shah was on a motorcycle, the driver said. “He chased the ambulance all the way from the police station, stopped his motorbike right in front of the ambulance and beckoned us to stop,” the driver narrated in a police challan.

He said Shah asked everyone to look ahead and had a brief chat with inspector Amir. “Then, all of a sudden, I heard the ambulance’s sliding door open. As soon as the door opened, a bullet was fired followed by shrieks of the wounded person from the ambulance,” the challan states.

“The police personnel signaled me to stay silent and drive the vehicle to the hospital. Ranjhani was declared dead on arrival at Jinnah hospital”

Police submitted the challan to the administrative anti-terrorism court. The deputy prosecutor recommended including sections of the Anti-Terrorism Act in the case.

The court transferred the case to ATC-18 for formal hearing.
