The police say Javed was a real estate agent and lived in Phase-II of Defence Karachi.His family members told the police that Javed was at home when someone phoned him and asked him to come out. The moment he stepped out into the street near his apartment he was shot at.

Hearing the gunshots, Javed’s family members and neighbours rushed out, but they did not see anyone in the street, where Javed’s dead body laid, the police said.

The police say Javed was shot six times in the head and it appeared to be a case of personal vendetta.
