An unknown individual resorted to gunfire against a worker at Karachi’s Lucky Toll Plaza following a dispute regarding unauthorized entry and passing without paying the toll tax.
As per the reports, the confrontation unfolded on a Saturday at the Lucky Toll Plaza, where the worker was compelled to halt the individual who was navigating in a prohibited direction on the road.
A video captured by the closed-circuit television (CCTV) at the location depicts the worker approaching and attempting to stop a vehicle at the plaza. This soon escalated to a fierce exchange of words, culminating in the driver extracting a handgun from within the car and firing multiple shots at the young man, seemingly without restraint.
Regrettably, another employee at the toll plaza tried to mediate and defuse the situation, but his efforts proved futile. The video footage illustrates the driver retreating from the location, leaving the injured employee behind.
Authorities’ Response and Current Updates
In response to the incident, SSP Kemari Arif Aslam Rao issued a statement, mentioning that legal proceedings have been initiated against the assailant. Thankfully, the victim of the attack, a 25-year-old individual named Abrar, managed to survive the gunfire and is presently in a stable condition, having moved past the critical danger phase.
SSP Kemari disclosed that the early stages of the investigation had identified the vehicle’s registration under Arsalan Baloch. The authorities are vigorously pursuing further lines of inquiry to investigate the alarming incident thoroughly.
