Dr. Birbal Genani, a former assistant head of health for the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC), was shot and killed in the port city on Thursday by unidentified attackers.

According to the authorities, Dr. Genani and his female medical aide were travelling from Ramswamy to Gulshan-e-Iqbal when an unknown armed individual attacked their vehicle near Garden interchange on the Lyari Expressway.

The former KMC head of health passed away instantly, and his aide was shot.

The body and the wounded were moved to the hospital after the police and emergency personnel were alerted and sprang into action.

Dr. Genani’s vehicle could be seen veering out of control and colliding with a wall in the incident’s closed-circuit television (CCTV) camera video that was captured and made its way online.

Speaking to media, SSP City Arif Aziz described the murder of Dr. Genani as a “target killing” and said that the precise motive for the crime is still unknown.

When the unidentified assailants assaulted the car, the woman doctor, who works with him, was inside.

“Firing started suddenly and I could not understand anything,” the police officer said, citing the injured woman.

He continued that there appeared to be just one gunshot hole in the car. The police officer added that they are documenting the female doctor’s testimony.

In the meantime, the event was noted by Sindh Governor Kamran Khan Tessori, who then requested a report from the assistant inspector general of Karachi police. He also voiced his profound grief for the eye specialist’s murder.
