We could never have imagined that he'd die at 24
Karachi: The family of Ahad Faridi, a final year student of the MBA evening programme at Karachi University, who lost his life on Thursday evening while trying to save his cell phone from being snatched, remain in a state of shock and grief.

Ahad, son of Kamal Faridi, belonged to a family of six, and was the second eldest among his siblings, including three brothers and sisters. "The family had a lot of expectations from him, as he was about to complete his MBA, and establish a lucrative career. We could never have imagined that he'd die at 24 years of age," Mirza Fahad, Ahad's cousin said.

The deceased's family lived in Federal 'B' Area Block 10, and Ahad would teach students in the street adjacent to theirs. According to Fahad, Ahad was on his way to teach his tuition students, when a stranger on a motorbike tried to snatch his cell phone. The assailant did not seem to have a gun, Fahad said, adding that perhaps this was the reason why Ahad tried to strangle him. However, the mugger fired three bullets from a gun hidden inside his clothes, killing Ahad on the spot.

Talking to the residents of Federal 'B' Area Block 10, it has bees learnt that a security guard was present on the scene of crime, but he had nothing with which he could fight. "My cousin got murdered near his house in front of a security guard by an unknown person.

What law in this country allows such an incident to happen? From now on, I think we should stop our children from going outside, that seems the only solution," Fahad said.

The neighbours of the deceased had good things to say about Ahad, after which the allegations of a killing due to enmity seemed baseless. "Ahad was like our elder brother and he belonged to a very respectable family. Neither he nor any of his family members caused any problems in the past; in fact they were of great help whenever someone needed them," a friend of Ahad, who preferred to remain anonymous.

The funeral proceedings of Ahad Faridi were conducted after Friday prayers yesterday.
