The Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) of Sindh on Wednesday (Dec 26) said that the forensic report of Ali Raza Abidi has clarified that “one of the murder weapons had also been used in another killing in Liaquatabad recently”.
After receiving the forensic report, Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) In-charge Raja Umar Khattab said, “The weapon used in Abidi’s murder was used to kill a man named Ihtisham in Liaquatabad on December 10.” “A 30-bore pistol was also used in Ihtisham’s murder. He was shot thrice,” the CTD in-charge said. He further said that according to Ihtisham’s family he was not affiliated with any political party. “There were pistols in both hands of the suspect and they were both used in Abidi’s murder. Only one bullet was fired from one of the pistols and that is the one which was also used in Ihtisham’s murder,” Khattab said. “The other pistol has not yet been matched to any other murder,” he added.
According to the official, Abidi had reached home from his factory earlier than usual when he was attacked. “Abidi had returned home earlier than his routine time as he had to take his family for dinner,” he said.
