Meet the man who survived the dreaded bori

In an unprecedented incident in this violence-hit city of lights, a man dumped by criminals, who believed their prey to be dead, was recovered alive from a gunny bag in the Lyari area on Tuesday.
Meet Imran, who was found inside a gunny bag near Lyari River and taken to the Civil Hospital by police and rescue workers for legal formalities.
Everybody at the hospital got the shock of their lives, as the ‘dead man’ was found to be alive and immediately rushed for medical treatment.
Since his childhood, 30-year-old Imran had heard about violence, torture and targeted killings in the city and only watched about bullet-riddled and tortured bodies on television.
But he had never thought that one day he will be kidnapped himself and thrown in a gunny bag after being tortured.
Speaking to the media, Imran’s mother said that his son had left the house for Eid shopping and had been missing since. He was kidnapped, tortured and shot, but fortunately remained alive, she added.
“Thanks be to God, who saved him even though the cruel people had almost killed him,” she told journalists at the hospital.
Kidnappings are becoming a routine in the city and the victims’ bodies are later found dumped in old gunny bags by police or rescue workers.
The trend became common in the early 1990s but has recently returned to the city, as terrorists kidnap a person, brutally torture him and dump his body in a gunny bag after killing him. The sacks are thrown on the roadsides or any other deserted place.

    @ Aslam & Shamo—-Violence, deceit, extortion and kidnapping for ransom has been used in Karachi since mid 80s. It was started by none other than MQM. Unfortunately every sitting government, including Zia, Musharraf and Zardari has directly encouraged such elements by not catching the criminals responsible for murder of innocent citizens. Instead violence has been accepted as an acceptable tool to exert political hegemony in Karachi. This was displayed very vocally by Musharraf on the eve of 12 May 2007. Encouraged by the lack of accountability, every political party in Karachi has armed thugs kidnapping poor unarmed innocent citizens, who are then brutally killed to exert their hegemony and extract extortion. The police was forced to induct over 650 nominees of MQM with a crminal record and some 500 of otherr parties such as PPP and ANP. Now it has assumed a dangerous threat to Karachi, but political exigencies and quick financial returns have become an impediment to the law taking its course. Blood of 6,000 Karachites is on the head of Altaf, Zardari and Afsandyar Wali.

    zulfiqar mirza is anarrow minded person.Iknow him since he was studying in LMC.He thinks that muhagirs has captured the land of sindh after partition.They do not have any right to live in sindh.They should vacate it.He thinks that when sindh will be vaccated from Muhajirs,it will be an easy task to remove punjabis and pushtoons from sindh.Heis doing this with the full support of Mr, zardari.Actually PPP is a Sindhi Nationalist Party.Whenever they come in power first they starts genocide of mohahirs.Then they will try to disintegrate punjab with the help of MQM and other coalition partners.Then they will disintegrate the whole country,to achieve their ultimate goal which is Liberation of sindh

      I do not personally know Dr Mirza but you are much more vitriolic towards Sindhis. Sindhis have nefer said that Mohajirs have no right to live in Sindh. Before Zia the moron created MQM Sindh did not have these problems which we see today. There have been hundreds of thousands intermarriages.

      Sindh has not seen peace since the inception of MQM.
      The so called Qaid is living here in London and pulling strings from here to destroy peace in Karachi. He has not risen above mohajirism although he claims his party represents across the spectrum. He can not deceive people any more, His options are getting less and less. If he wants to continue to destroy the day to day living of whole population in general and his own constituency on particular then he should continue with his michievous telephone calls and one day whole nation will rise against him.

    The man who miraculously survived from 'Bori' is a gold mine of information, The killers will now be after him so that he could not provide information to the police. His information go a long way in identifying those who have committed this crime but it was a miracle he survived this ordeal. The others were not lhat lucky. Who is this man? This has to be found out, Has he any criminal record himself?
