KARACHI: Two employees were gunned down on Saturday’s wee hours when unidentified men attacked a fire station near Bilal Chowrangi in Karachi’s Korangi area, ARY News reported.

According to details, two unidentified men stormed the fire station and opened indiscriminate fire, killing two employees and injuring one. Meanwhile, fourth employee saved his life by fleeing the scene.

Talking to media, an eyewitness – identified as Zeeshan – said Mehboob was on guard duty while he was on operator duty when two armed individuals stormed the building.

The miscreants asked Mehboob about the rest of the employees. Later, the suspects took Amir Qureshi and Irshad at gunpoint and brought them from the inner part of the building to the control room.

After they rounded up the four employees, the unidentified accused opened fire on them, killing two of them on the spot. The deceased have been identified as Amir and Mehboob.
