Former Senate chairman Mohammad Mian Soomro’s nephew was killed on Monday, while another sustained injuries during an exchange of fire between two groups in Islamabad, Express News reported.
According to police, exchange of fire occurred between the two groups led by Raja Asad and Hussain Malik, as a result of which ex-chairman Senate Mohamamd Mian Soomro’s nephew Barrister Fahad Malik lost his life.
The clash broke out in the early hours of Monday in Islamabad’s F10-3 area. According an initial postmortem report, the victim received four bullets; two in the face, one in the neck and one in the back.
Police said the exchange of fire was rooted in a personal dispute.
In May, Islamabad police registered a case against former chairman Senate Nayyer Hussain Bokhari for allegedly assaulting a police official on duty.
Reports suggested Bokhari, who is a Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader and a practicing lawyer, allegedly slapped a policeman at city district court when the official tried to conduct a body search.
Bokhari was asked to stop for a body search as he arrived at the court, following which the former chairman Senate slapped and also threatened a constable.
