Police claimed to have arrested a young man allegedly involved in the murder of a Pakistan Navy officer, who according to the police, was gunned down in a robbing bid.
The police said that Ghulam Nabi, 42, a chief petty officer of the Pakistan Navy, was shot dead on Thursday when he was withdrawing cash from the ATM of a private bank in Block-19 of Gulistan-e-Jauhar Morr.
The police also said that they had arrested the culprit, Azhar, from a residential apartment in Gulistan-e-Jauhar with the help of the footage of a CCTV camera installed in the ATM cabin, adding that some locals had informed the police after identifying Azhar in the footage aired by some TV channels. The police further said that the pistol used in the crime was also recovered from the possession of Azhar, who was a habitual criminal and was released from prison only three weeks ago.
The police added that Azhar had been previously arrested by the police of Darakhshan, Defence and Shahrah-e-Noor Jahan in various cases of street crime.
Quoting the accused, the police disclosed that he had managed to snatch only Rs 1,000 from the Rs 5,000 that the victim had withdrawn, adding that Azhar had no intention of killing Nabi, but since he had tried to resist, the situation resulted in unexpected firing and caused the death of the officer, who was a father of two daughters and originally hailed from Kotri in interior Sindh.
