Senior Shiite Police Official Shot Martyred in Karachi

Ahlul Bayt News Agency - KARACHI: Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Zulfiqar Zaidi was gunned down along with his friend in Shah Faisal colony area after takfiri terrorists of the so-called Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) opened fire in Karachi city of Pakistan on Saturday evening.

Witnesses and police officials said that the incident occurred when DSP was having dinner at a restaurant along with his friend Shahzad when at least two armed men on a motorcycle targeted him, firing over a dozen times.

DSP Zaidi and his friend were shot multiple times and died at the spot. Their bodies were shifted to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for autopsies.

Shortly after the attack a large contingent of police official reached the scene of the attack and cordoned off the site to collect evidence.

Senior police officials including IGP Sindh Ghulam Hyder Jamali visited the spot after the incident. He said that the area was suffering power breakdown in the area and that DSP Zaidi’s attackers took advantage of the darkness.

He added that the office of the Fauji Foundation also located near the site and its guards tried to catch the culprits. But the assailants managed to escape.

IGP Jamali said that different teams of the police are working to arrest those who are targeting police officers.

“We are close to arresting those culprits but right now I can’t share the details as it will effect investigations,” the IGP explained.

The bodies of DSP Zaidi and Shoaib were shifted to Jinnah Hospital.

DSP Zaidi from Shia Islam leaves behind a widow and a daughter. He had adopted a daughter last year.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has condemned the fatal attack on DSP Zulfiqar Zaidi in Karachi.

He directed provincial government to beef up security in the provincial capital to avoid such attacks.

Seeking a report of the incident, the PM emphasised on the need for taking steps to boost police’s morale as it plays a key role in maintaining law and order.

He reiterated that government is fully committed to restoring peace and stability in Karachi so that its citizens can lead their lives in tranquility.

The terror group of Ahle Sunnah Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) was first banned in 2002 by Gen Pervez Musharraf. Activists from the pro-al-Qaeda group formerly known as the Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP), or [so-called] Soldiers of the Companions of the Prophet, have been convicted of killing thousands of of Shia Muslims, even Christians and Sunnis. The current chief of ASWJ is Muhammad Ahmad Ludhianvi.

Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP), also known as Anjuman Sipah-e-Sahaba, Guardians of the Friends of the Prophets, Millat-e-Islamia, Pakistan, Mililat-I-Islami Pakistan, SSP, Sipah-I-Sahaba Pakistan, Sepah Sahabeh, Corps of the Companions of the Prophet Mohammed, Ahl-e- Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ)--New Name is an active group formed c. 1985.

Their new name as Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) may lead to misunderstandings and someone thinks they are Sunni Muslims; but we must know there is no relation between them and Sunnis. Instead, these extremists cause severe damage to the community of Sunni Muslims.
