KARACHI: Arrested target killer named Javed Punjabi has revealed that he was paid Rs 2,000 for a killing by his commander.

Punjabi’s group included Jameel Changa, Sultan Agha, Kamran Kamu, Fazal Dada among 16 persons.

The target killer was apprehended from Purana Golimar around a month ago. In one the incidents, Punjabi and two accomplices named Salman and Zahid alias Haddi abducted a local, Khuram Hazar and tortured him. The body was later thrown in Lyari’s lake.
