Ahmadi doctor shot dead in Mirpurkhas

MIRPURKHAS: A renowned Ahmadi doctor was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in an apparent sectarian attack on Monday. Physician and cardiologist Dr Abdul Manan Siddiqui – who sources said had been receiving threats for several months – was at his Fazl-e-Umar Medical Centre when the gunmen fired at him. Siddiqui died instantly while his guard, Arif, was injured. Pakistan Medical Association Mirpurkhas President Dr Mushtaq Khan has announced a 24-hour strike and demanded the district administration arrest the killers within three days. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain condemned Siddiqui’s killing in a statement later on Monday, and demanded the authorities immediately arrest those responsible. staff report
