“Unknown assailants opened fire on my car upon which my guards retaliated,” Vawda told DawnNews.
Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah took notice of the incident and requested a report from Inspector-General Police (IGP) A.D. Khawaja.
“Total six bullets were fired at the car,” said senior PTI leader Imran Ismail, adding that the gunmen were just a few metres away from the car.
“The gunmen opened fire on Vawda from his side and then I was fired upon from the opposite side. I told Vawda to ‘accelerate the car, we’re under attack’.”
Both Vawda and Ismail escaped unhurt.
