Two people, including a Sindh Police assistant sub-inspector (ASI) were killed when armed men on motorcycles opened fire on them in Karachi's Soldier Bazaar today. 

The incident occurred at Soldier Bazaar No. 2 area, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) East Qamar Raza Jaskani said.

The victims, identified as Javed Baloch, and Mohammad Muqaddas, were travelling on a motorcycle when four suspects on two motorcycles followed them and opened fire on the victims. 

The deceased were residents of the Lyari's Chakiwara neighbourhood. 

According to the initial police inquiry, a 9mm pistol was used in the event, and 13 pieces of 9mm pistol ammunition were collected from the scene.
