Karachi: Telecom Franchise Attacked Yet Again
We had covered on the subject early this month when the Telenor and Mobilink franchise attacked in December last year. As Januray draws to close we have more. In a recent attack Warid sales officer was shot dead and just today we have another attack on Telenor franchise taking life of women and a security guard.
This brings the death toll in Karachi telecom franchise attacks to 5 in last two months and 4 in particular to Telenor franchise.
More on the matter from Express Tribune excerpts:
A security guard and a woman was killed when unidentified gunmen opened fire at Telenor’s franchise in the Nazimabad area of Karachi on Tuesday, reported Express News.
Three other people sustained injuries in the incident and have been shifted to a hospital.
The police reached the franchise to investigate into the incident. SP North Nazimabad Chaudhry Asad said that four men came to the franchise on two motorcycles and opened fire at it.
The police said that it was planned attack.
The attacks on mobile franchises have been on the rise in the city.
Yet again, who are the attackers and what is their real motive behind these attacks still remains unclear. If is it about target killing, why suddenly did telecom franchises become the target?
