School teacher shot dead by gunmen in Pakistan
Islamabad: A 35-year-old Pakistani school teacher was today shot dead by two unidentified gunmen in country’s southern Sindh province, police said.
Abdul Hafeez Qazi was attacked in the early morning outside al-Mehran Public School near Qadirpur Road in Ghotki.
“At least two gunmen on a motorcycle attacked the teacher. The killers escaped after the incident,” police said.
The victim was taken to a nearby hospital where he was declared brought dead. The shooting took place shortly after assembly.
No other casualties were reported as the students had already reached their respective classes, they said. Further investigation in the matter is going on.
Killing of professionals like doctors, lawyers and professors is common in Sindh’s capital Karachi where different sectarian and militants groups target rivals. Sometimes personal enmity and money matters also lead to revenge killings.
