Pakistan probes ‘unlawful’ videoed killing in Karachi
Video footage shows the man, Sarfaraz Shah, begging for his life before being shot by the paramilitaries in Karachi.
The Rangers say the young man was caught trying to rob someone. His family denies this.
I have not decided which is more disturbing: the actual cold-blooded killing of an unarmed civilian by paramilitary thugs, or the fact that apparently, “trying to rob someone” is deemed sufficient justification for an ex parte execution. The video of the entire incident is available on Youtube. I will not link it, due to its graphic nature. Suffice to say that the killing appears wanton and unjustified; the victim is umarmed in the face of a half dozen armed Sindh Rangers.
