Fire station attack: KMC official ‘denied’ first aid by police
KARACHI: In yet another act of negligence, Karachi police preferred to record statement of an injured Karachi Metropolitan Corporation’s (KMC) fire brigade department official instead of shifting him to hospital, following an armed attack. Two officials of KMC fire brigade department were shot dead while third was critically injured in Korangi Fire Station attack.
Neglecting orders of police chief, cops recorded statement of injured official first on a crime scene and then in an ambulance instead of shifting him to hospital for first aid.
Unidentified men stormed fire station and opened indiscriminate fire, killing two employees and injuring one.
