KARACHI: A man who was injured during a mugging attempt in Karachi, passed away in the late hours of Sunday, after being bedridden for seven years.
Umair had been shot by robbers in the backbone during a mugging attempt in a bus near KDA Chowrangi, Nazimabad, on Sept 14, 2010.
According to the family, he was declared untreatable by the doctors at that time.
A group of doctors in the United States had agreed to treat Umair, but the family could not collect the necessary funds to undergo the operation, despite having appealed to higher authorities.
Umair was shifted to the hospital last night as his condition got worse, however, he passed away during treatment.
