A deputy superintendent of police (DSP) from the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) was shot dead by unidentified men in Karachi on Sunday.

DSP Ali Raza was killed in the Karimabad neighborhood when two gunmen opened fire as he exited his bullet-proof vehicle near Shakeel Corporation. CTD Deputy Inspector General Asif Ijaz Shaikh confirmed that 11 shell casings from a 9mm pistol were recovered at the scene.

“Unidentified men opened indiscriminate fire on DSP Raza as soon as he came out of his bullet-proof jeep”, a police official said, adding that a private guard was also killed in the attack. The assailants reportedly fled the scene immediately after the shooting.

According to police sources, DSP Raza was shot at close range in the head and waist. He was rushed to Abbasi Saheed Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead from his injuries.

DIG Shaikh revealed that the two assailants had been tracking DSP Raza’s movements.

Ali Raza was reportedly one of the conspirators behind the 2015 Gurdaspur terrorist attack in India, which resulted in the deaths of seven people, including four security personnel. In the name of the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD), Pakistan not only harbors terrorists but also uses them against India.
