The Education Department of Sindh has also confirmed that no decision has been made to close the schools today.

The incident took place in the city area of Gulistan-e-Jauhar’s Block 7 where two armed assailants riding a motorcycle opened fire on Raza, according to local residents. Police and rescue personnel rushed to the crime scene and shifted him to the hospital.

They further said that the suspects were seen multiple times in the area, adding that they had informed the police about them but the authorities turned a deaf ear to their complaints.
