Guard opens fire on Karachi defense production team


Nine people were injured after a guard opened fire on them for having lunch in the garage of a rented bungalow in DHA’s Khayaban-e-Shujaat on Wednesday afternoon.

A team of 7e Sky Entertainment was filming a drama series called Mohabbat Dagh Ke Surat when the staff went to an un rented part of the bungalow for lunch.

The guard, identified as Gulbai, walked up to them and asked them to move inside or in the garden. He told them that the owner of the house would be arriving soon and that he would park his four-wheeled vehicle under the porch of the car.

“We told him [the guard] it was very hot and we couldn’t sit in the garden, ”an employee of the production house, who was on site, told SAMAA Digital. We assured him that we were going to move but he didn’t budge.

The guard then threatened to shoot if we did not leave the premises immediately. “One of our colleagues Bilal told him to shoot if he could dare,” said the employee, adding that “the guard opened fire by pointing his gun at the ground.”

Southern Police Chief Superintendent Zubair Nazir said nine people were injured after the guard opened fire. “Clifton Police immediately arrived at the scene, arrested the guard and seized his gun.”

Police registered FIR No. 246/2021 under section 324 (attempted murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) on the complaint of Geo News technical department chief Muhammad Sadiq Khan.

The injured were transferred to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC) for treatment. They have been identified as Muhammad Yousuf, Akber, Zahid Ali, Muhammad Shahzad, Muhammad Awais, Farhan Alam and Shahzad.
