An attacker, pretending to be a dental patient, has killed one Chinese citizen and injured two others inside a dental clinic in the Saddar area of Pakistan’s Karachi, a police official confirmed. Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has taken note of the killing and asked the IGP to submit a detailed report on it.
SSP South Asad Raza told reporters that the attacker, pretending to be a patient, attacked three of them in a dental clinic. The police have identified them as 25-year-old RonilD Raimond Chaw, 72-year-old Margrade and 74-year-old Richard and have confirmed that all of them were Chinese people.
Police surgeon Dr Summaiya Syed told Dawn.com that a man with bullet wounds was brought dead to the Dr Ruth Pfau Civil Hospital. She said that the two injured, a man and a woman, were taken to the Jinnah Post-Graduate Medical Centre in a critical injured state. The doctor, however, claimed that the condition of both the injured foreigners was critical since they had got wounds in their abdomen.
