Mohammed Anwar was killed during an attempt to assassinate a teenager
A friend of the man killed while delivering food in Washington, DC – allegedly by two girls aged 13 and 15 during a botched carjacking – crime is not receiving enough attention.
Mohammad Anwar, 66, was a Pakistani immigrant who had been in the United States for seven or eight years. When his limousine business slowed down during the epidemic, he started delivering food.
Police earlier said that Anwar died of the teenager on March 23.
Anwar’s friend, Gohar Khan said, “It is outrageous that someone can kill it and run away with it.”
Khan, a Pakistani resident from Virginia, said there were too many people standing there and doing nothing to help.
“Someone should have helped,” Khan said. “I think too much is going on in America today.”
The suspects – whose officials have not publicly named him because of his age – were charged with murder and armed carjacking. However, both teenagers are expected to file a plea deal when they return to court later this month.
Khan said that if the girls were in school then the incident would not have happened.
“It’s almost zero if they were in school, you know,” he said.
Reminders for Capital Officer Homes, Last Price Paid
Carjacking in the nation’s capital is up more than 300% this year. Murder has increased 34% so far this year Washington Post. Last year ended with 16 years of murders.
DC’s Metropolitan Police Department said that many Kargils are carried by teenagers.
A spokesperson for the department told Granthshala News, “We have seen that a large number of these crimes are committed by young teenagers (13–16 year olds) and vehicles are often used for other crimes such as robbery and firing.” ” “With the prevalence of more delivery drivers on the road due to the epidemic, it provides more opportunities for them to force them to become victims of carjacking.”
For Khan – mourning the loss of his friend – he thinks the rate of mass crime is rising across the country, such as the killing of innocent victims like Anwar in major cities during the epidemic.
“Muslims, as well as any other life, matters,” he said. “And yes, you know, some underlying things that don’t make headlines. And maybe Muslim life is one of them.”
Khan said that Anwar “was one of the hard workers. And I respect him. And he didn’t deserve to die the way he did.”
He The couple added that he would give this message to his friend: “Your life matters just like any other life. All lives are precious.”
A GoFundMe page founded in Anwar’s honor has raised over $ 1 million.
“We will fight for the rest of the people and tell our story that we are here, the first generation, the second generation, and we work hard just like any other race,” Khan said. “We deserve to live on par.”
