Seth Abid looses son; killer caught!

On 2nd November, I was driving through Johar Town when we heard emergency sirens, a couple of ambulances rushing to a scene; a clear sign that something real bad had happened in the area.

Newspapers on the next day broke this news of Hafiz Ayaz Ahmad, son of renowned businessman, industrialist, investor and philanthropist, Seth Abid being shot and killed on spot. One of his own guards opened fire on the arriving party at Airline Housing Society, that resulted in the death of Hafiz Ayaz, his three gunmen and a passerby.

The incident happened on Thursday and on Friday morning, the culprit, Muhammad Rizwan, was captured and arrested from his native village. Full story on his arrest can be read here.

That is called an effective response to a crime!

    It was learnt, btw, that the poor guard had not been paid for guard duty for months. Mentally stressed and frustrated, and on duty to protect the land from intruders, he opened fire assuming his employers to be intruders.

    The tyranny of the social system that the privileged have created is finally turning around. What goes round, comes round.

    his lawyers had given a half page advertisment in dawn asking from any one who could help them find the actual motive/reason behind the killing…. they’ve announced Rs 20 million reward too…

    Seth is among the richest in pakistan and definitely it is’nt simply the case of an underpaid employee… there must be more to it for sure… he must have enemies and wat not…

    p.s. most of you might find this interesting but this guy even got BB kidnaped from london back in bhutto’s era..
