KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court on Friday sent seven accused, including six Rangers personnel, to jail over the killing of Sarfaraz Shah, DawnNews reported.

Earlier on Monday, six personnel of Pakistan Rangers, Sindh, and a civilian were remanded in police custody by the administrative judge of the anti-terrorism courts in Karachi for their involvement in the June 8 shooting to death of the unarmed young man.

Widely televised footage showed the youth, Sarfraz Shah, being shot at and then left to die by the Rangers personnel in the Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Park within the remit of the Boat Basin police station.

The Rangers had earlier claimed that the youth was armed and killed in an encounter.

However, the video footage aired by television channels clearly showed that the unarmed youth was shot to death by the Rangers personnel at point-blank range as he first pleaded for mercy and later begged to be taken to hospital.
