Islamabad — Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has taken notice of the attack on a US national who was shot and critically injured on Shaheed-e-Millat Road in Karachi on Thursday.

Further, the premier has also directed that the culprits responsible for the shooting be arrested immediately.

According to Senior Superintendent Police (SSP) Pir Mohammed Shah, the victim, Debra Lobo, who is a vice-principal at Jinnah Medical and Dental College (JMDC), was shot at by four unidentified assailants on two motorcycles as she left the college to go home in her red Suzuki sedan.

Lobo was hit twice in her cheek and shoulder, following which she was taken to the Aga Khan University Hospital for treatment. Several hours later, the hospital’s spokesperson said that she was out of danger.
