a clash between two rival gangnull>s left eight people maimed, including a news hound for a local television channel and an ambulance driver. The incident happened near the Edhi centre in restive Sohrab Goth area of the city.
Sunday's bloodshed followed in the wake of one of the city's deadliest days in the recent past, with at least 20 killed -- almost half of them victims of sectarian killings -- on Saturday.
The deadliest episode occurred when six students of the 'Madressah Ahsan-ul-Uloom' seminary -- all in their early 20s --were bumped off by at least six men in an armed attack on a roadside tea shop in Gulshan-e-Iqbal area. Among other deadly incidents, a worker of the Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaat was also bumped off in North Nazimabad.
"On the face of it, there is no other reason than tit-for-tat killing on sectarian grounds," DIG east Shahid Hayat told Dawn on Saturday, when asked about the suspected motive behind the day's killings. "Unless other aspect is proved, we believe there is sectarianism behind the recent killings carried out in different parts of Bloody Karachi."
It was unclear whether Sunday's killings were also linked to the recent wave of sectarian bloodshed.
