Angry ex-employee holds entire staff hostage in Karachi

An armed man who held hostage the entire staff of a private company claimed he was fired by the same organisation two months ago.

Saleem Shahzad reportedly broke into his ‘former’ office in Super Highway area Tuesday where he threatened to blow himself up if police tried to arrest him.

Police were negotiating with the armed men who had warned of consequences if his demands were not accepted.

In a video available with Dunya News, Shahzad claimed he was affiliated with the organisation but was fired after he sustained injury two months ago.
