Extortion mafia cuts off water-seller’s foot in Karachi
What can be described as an act of extreme barbarity, a man selling water at Seaview in Karachi got one of his feet chopped off three days ago, on September 5 (Sunday) after he refused to pay money to the extortionists, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday.
And the ordeal of Abid, a resident of Neelum Colony, did not end here as when he was shifted to Jinnah Hospital in an injured condition that very foot, which had been amputated, disappeared.
According to the text of the case, which Darakhshan police later registered on Abid’s complaint, a man named Sarfaraz came to him to collect money. “And when I told him that I did not have money with me because of drop in the sale of water, Sarfaraz, the extortionist, ordered the driver of a tractor to run over my feet. This separated one of my feet from my legs. And when I was shifted to Jinnah Hospital in an unconscious condition, I also lost that foot separated from my body,” reads the text.
Police started hunting for the suspects after the registration of the case.
