Saad Gulzar, the son of Supreme Court judge Justice Gulzar Ahmed, has escaped unhurt after unidentified armed men opened fire on his vehicle in Karachi’s Korangi neighbourhood on Wednesday, police officials said.
SSP Korangi Noman Siddiqui said armed men in a suspicious vehicle opened fire on Saad’s car near Vita Chowrangi in Korangi industrial area.

Siddiqui said the incident was a result of a ‘misunderstanding’ as no one was killed or wounded in the exchange of fire. No bullet marks were also found on Saad’s vehicle, he added.
Meanwhile, the spokesperson of Sindh Police has contradicted SSP Siddiqui’s statement, saying that three suspects were riding motorcycles near Vita Chowrangi and the guards opened fire soon after spotting the suspicious armed men in the area.
