Gilgit, July 27: A police official, identified as Shabbar, a resident of Napura Baseen, was shot dead earlier today in Naroot Mahallah near Naekoe locality of Gilgit city.
According to details unknown people opened fire on Shabbar, ASI by rank, when he was coming towards the Bazaar area. He sustained fatal injuries and died after a while. Cause of the broad day light murder could not be ascertained.
Several incidents of firing on innocent people have taken place especially in Baseen area but the law enforcing agencies have not been able to nab the culprits. It is pertinent to note that millions of rupees are being spent on daily basis to facilitate the law enforcing agencies, like Rangers, Police, NA Scouts and many other agencies.
The security apparatus, apart from gaining momentary successes, has generally failed to maintain law and order in capital city of the Gilgit – Baltistan region.
