In the Nazimabad area of the southern port city, a Pakistani-Canadian man lost his life when he resisted a robbery attempt by assailants. According to reports, the man, identified as Amin Alvi, was accompanying four street children on a shopping trip when his vehicle was halted by two motorcycle-riding robbers.
One of the children provided a statement to the police, stating that before heading to the shopping destination, Alvi had visited a bank and a currency exchange. The child recounted that as Alvi’s car was stopped near the Board Office, the robbers approached him, demanding the surrender of his valuable possessions and cash.
The child further explained that initially, Alvi had agreed to comply with the robber’s demands, but when the assailant attempted to reach into his pocket, Alvi resisted and pushed him away. In response, the robber fired a shot and swiftly fled the scene, leaving Alvi in critical condition. A compassionate rickshaw driver transported him to the hospital, but unfortunately, Alvi did not survive.
According to Geo News, the police revealed that Alvi had retired from a foreign airline five years ago and visited Karachi two or three times a year. The authorities mentioned that once Alvi’s family members arrive in Karachi, funeral prayers will be held for him.
