A FIR against PPP leader Dr. Asim Hussain was demanded by the MQM-P later that day.

The incident happened late on Sunday night outside a MQM-P election office while a PPP rally was passing through the area, Gulbahar SHO Shabbir Hussain told Dawn.

He claimed that after throwing insulting remarks at one another, employees from both parties got into a fight that ended with both sides firing each other.

The area SHO reported that following the shooting, “a mob surrounded the area and destroyed two Toyota Vigos belonging to PPP workers before setting them on fire.”

According to police surgeon Dr. Summaiya Syed, Talha was shot in the left arm, but Faraz was hit by a bullet that killed him in the head.

Leading MQM-P figure Mustafa Kamal described the incident as “an organised attack” by the PPP on his party and charged that Dr. Asim Hussain, a former federal minister, was “supervising” the entire event.

He told a press conference, “The PPP has actually given that man [Dr. Hussain] free rein with all government machinery and police to bring the party to power by outsourcing district Central to him.”

“This is the sixth incidence of this kind in the last several weeks, but let me assure you that it won’t happen again. We cannot watch as our employees die and remain mute. According to Dr. Asim’s orders, the police are helping the PPP personnel, he stated.
