In another attempted killing in Nawab Shah, 125 miles northeast of Karachi, a local Ahmad farmer Alwi was targeted with multiple gunshots leaving him fighting for his life at a local hospital.
Coincidently, according to Maqsood Khan, Alwi’s older brother Hanif was also shot to death in a case of Ahmadi target killing two years ago.
