Armed attack on anti-encroachment team in Karachi’s Surjani Town leaves mukhtiarkar dead

KARACHI: A revenue official (mukhtiarkar) was on Monday shot dead and two other officials were wounded by what police described as “land mafia” during an anti-encroachment operation to vacate a plot in Surjani Town on court orders.

SSP-West Faisal Bashir Memon told the newsmen that the mukhtiarkar of Manghopir, Ejaz Ali Chandio, along with mobiles vans of anti-encroachment cell of the Sindh government’s Board of Revenue backed by local police, led a campaign in Surjani Town’s Saira Bibi Goth to vacate a plot of the Saylani Welfare Trust.

However, they were faced stiff resistance from the occupants of the land, who resorted to firing, wounding a mukhtiarkar, tapedar and a shovel operator.

Mukhtiarkar Chandio was taken to a private hospital on Stadium Road where he was pronounced dead.
