Police claimed killing two robbers suspected to be involved in an alleged gang-rape of a teenage girl in Surjani Town a few days during a shootout on Wednesday.
The teenager was raped by four men, who barged into her house on Sunday night and locked other family members in a room after robbing valuables.
Karachi District West Police said on Wednesday that two alleged rapists were killed in a police encounter.
SHO Haji Sanaullah said the encounter occurred when the two fired gunshots at a mobile. The cops returned fire, killing both suspects on the spot. They seized two pistols, a cell phone and a motorcycle after the exchange of fire.
SHO Sanaullah said the suspects were the same who had allegedly gang-raped the teenage girl during a burglary in Surjani Town a few days ago. He said the victim’s family had identified the culprits.
