Islamabad: In a significant development from Pakistan, Mufti Qaiser Farooq, a notable individual with connections to Lashkar-e-Taiba, an anti-India Pakistani terrorist organization, was brutally killed by unidentified assailants in Karachi. The incident occurred as Mufti Qaiser Farooq was on his way to an undisclosed location when he came under attack and succumbed to multiple gunshot wounds. This incident marks a severe setback for Lashkar Chief Hafiz Saeed, given Mufti Qaiser Farooq's close association with him.

CCTV footage capturing the assassination of Mufti Qaiser Farooq has emerged, shedding light on the chilling incident. The footage shows several individuals walking along a road, with Mufti Qaiser Farooq in the group, dressed in a white kurta and pajama. Suddenly, a hail of bullets is unleashed upon him. Despite his attempts to flee, Qaiser Farooq is unable to evade the attackers and tragically meets his demise on the spot. Witnessing the gunfire, those accompanying him on the road hastily scatter, seeking safety. It's worth noting that Mufti Qaiser Farooq had been a wanted terrorist in India, but he remained beyond the reach of authorities due to his residence in Pakistan.
This incident is part of a series of targeted killings of prominent terrorists involved in anti-India activities within Pakistan. Recently, Zia-ur-Rehman of Lashkar-e-Taiba and Khalid Raza of Al Badr met a similar fate at the hands of unidentified assailants. Astonishingly, Pakistani law enforcement has yet to apprehend any suspects in connection with these incidents. This pattern raises questions about the security measures provided by Pakistan's intelligence agency, ISI, to high-profile terrorists who have been targeted in such attacks.
