Shot while begging for mercy
IT was a few years back when the Rangers’ personnel killed Sarfaraz Shah in Karachi — and now the Shahzeb case.
Both victims were begging for mercy and forgiveness but ultimately were killed on a minor issue which could have been resolved peacefully later on through negotiations.
It is unfortunate that the trend of such shootings is on the rise.
On a daily basis 20 to 30 people die in targeted killings, particularly in Karachi.
When will the Supreme Court take steps to control these killings?
Shahzeb’s issue made it clear that a common man is not protected even by law-enforcement agencies.
They are highly politicised.
