Security guard Ashfaq Khan was roaming around the street outside a café when he heard the sound of gunfire. “There was just a single gunshot,” he recalled. He froze in the middle of the street. “It was only when I spoke with a couple of other guards in the area that we learnt that it came from a building nearby,” he said. However, none of them saw the attackers leaving the office.

Dharejo denied that Chinoy’s laptop had been taken away by the murderers. “Some documents are suspected to have been taken away.”
