A 28 year Young Pakistani, Kamran Yousaf s/o Muhammad Yousaf, hailing from Jalalpur Jattan (Gujrat) was shot dead in Western Sydney on Saturday 12 October 2013 during a robbery at the fruit shop the deceased was working. This news has been received with deep sorrow and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its sympathies with the bereaved family on the irreparable loss.
Pakistan High Commission in Canberra and its Consulate General in Sydney responded immediately to this tragedy and, in coordination with the Overseas Pakistanis Foundation and Pakistani Community in Sydney, ensured timely transportation of the dead body (which is expected to reach Lahore this evening). The Pakistani mission is in contact with the local authorities and will continue to pursue the matter to bring the killers to justice.
While appreciating the Government of Australia’s early action in arresting the culprits and facilitating in dispatch of the body of late Kamran Yousaf, we urge that appropriate steps should be taken to ensure the security and safety of Pakistanis living and studying in Australia.
