Syed Farzand Ali Zaidi, who shot and killed a newly-wed man in Karachi’s Kashmir Road area in a robbery bid last Wednesday, was an on-duty cop who was on bail in a previous robbery case as well as three other criminal cases, it has emerged.

Farzand, who was posted in the investigation wing of Karachi’s West Zone Police, allegedly shot himself dead when police conducted a raid to arrest him.

According to DSTV’s investigations, Farzand was on bail in four similar cases registered against him — robbery and possession of illicit arms in 2017 — and possession of narcotics and illicit arms in 2019.

In the current case, he followed two women - mother and daughter - and held them up outside their house while they were paying the rickshaw driver.

The newly-wed, who had come out to check on his mother and sister, was shot dead in front of them.

The case raises a big question mark over the Sindh Police, who seem to have no mechanism to conduct background checks on its personnel and expel those involved in criminal activities.

The eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai volcano on Saturday killed at least three people, sent tsunami waves rolling across the archipelago, damaging villages, resorts and many buildings and knocked out communications for the nation of about 105,000 people.
Lisala Folau, who lived on the small, isolated island of Atata which has a population of about 60 people, was swept out to sea when the waves hit land at about 7 p.m. on Saturday, he said in a radio interview to Tongan media agency Broadcom Broadcasting.
