KARACHI: Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah on Tuesday announced head money for the eight absconders in the Safoora Goth carnage case.

The chief minister has set Rs2.5 million as head money for eight of the absconders connected to the Safoora Goth attack.

Those with head money of Rs2.5 million are Hafiz Muhammad Umar alias Hafeez, Ali Rehman alias Tona, Abdullah Mansoori, Mistri Pathan, Ijteba alias Dawood, Mehmood, Tayyab and Abdullah bin Yousuf alias Saqib.

Earlier in July, five eye-witnesses had identified suspects Saad Aziz and Tahir Hussain for their involvement in the Safoora Goth carnage.

The witnesses had rightly picked up the accused during the identification parade held in the court of a judicial magistrate in Malir and assigned them their roles in the commissioning of the offence.

The chief minister, while briefing media earlier in May had said that those arrested in connection with the Safoora Goth carnage and killing of rights activist Sabeen Mahmud, are “well-educated” militants.

He added that the arrested individuals had also confessed to grenade attacks on schools, bomb attacks on police vans, a naval officer and a Rangers brigadier, a gun attack on an American educationist and targeted killing of police officials.

On May 14, at least 43 people were killed and 13 others were wounded when armed men opened fire inside a bus carrying members of the Ismaili community near Safoora Chowk in Karachi.
