JPMC professor shot dead outside clinic

KARACHI, Sept 27: Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre's (JPMC) College of Medical Technology Principal Prof Mubashir Shaikh, 53, was killed in what is being described as a target killing outside his Mehmoodabad clinic after iftari on Wednesday.

The college is currently closed like other JPMC institutions after two students from its college of physiotherapy were killed in student violence with a rival political group. Police sources said that they could not rule out these matters in the investigations yet.

One son, three daughters and his wife survive the DHA Phase VIII resident. He had 20 years of government service to his credit and hailed from the Punjab. JPMC has planned a condolence meeting for 10.30am on Thursday morning. There were also reports that paramedics have called a rally, but it was not immediately confirmed whether this was linked to the professor's death.

According to eyewitnesses Khawaja Irfan and Javed Iqbal, two men on a motorcycle drove up to Prof Shaikh's car. One of them was wearing a helmet and the other had covered his face with a cloth. They signalled to the doctor by tapping on his window and asked him to scroll down his window before killing him. He was shot in the head according to Dr Seemin Jamali, chief of the casualty department.

Prof Shaikh was killed a few yards from his 'Sheikh Clinic' at Awami Chowk in Manzoor Colony within the limits of Baloch Colony police station. His brother, Zahid Muhammad, who runs a grocery shop near the clinic, was immediately informed of the incident. He rushed his brother to JPMC, where he died shortly after.

Target killing: Yasir, Shaikh's nephew, said he did not think his uncle had any enemies. According to an assistant sub-inspector on the case, the incident was a target killing. A high-level meeting of senior police officers was held late Wednesday night to discuss the incident. Daily Times
