They said that the body of 19-year-old Ahsan Baloch was found on Mirza Adam Khan Road.
“He was a resident of Singolane,” said Kalri SHO Inspector Safdar Mashwani. “He was hit by a single bullet in the head and it seems that he was kidnapped before being killed and the body was dumped at the scene in the middle of the night.”
He said that the body was handed over to the family after medico-legal formalities at the Civil Hospital Karachi.
He added that the family denied any enmity between the victim and anyone but was reluctant to share his personal details.
“The victim was a nephew of the headmistress of the Lyari Nursing School but his relation with her doesn’t seem to be linked to the murder,” the area SHO said.
