Buddy of Pakistani Uber Eats driver Murdered in DC:'All lives are Valuable'

Mohammad Anwar was murdered during adolescents' attempted carjacking

A friend of this man killed while providing food in Washington, D.C. -- supposedly by 2 women aged 13 and 15 through a botched carjacking -- believes the offense is not getting sufficient attention.

When his limo company slowed during the ordeal, he began delivering meals.

Anwar expired on March 23 following the adolescents used a Taser on him and that he had been thrown from his car during an attempted carjacking, police formerly said.

"It's ridiculous that somebody could kill and get away with it like this," Anwar's buddy, Goher Khan, stated.

"I think a lot of this is happening in America today."

The suspects -- who officials have not publicly named for their ages -- have been charged with murder and armed carjacking. But, both teenagers are expected to put in a plea bargain once they return to court later this month.

Khan said the incident"wouldn't have occurred" if the women had been in college.

"It is down to zero when they had been in college, you understand," he explained.

Carjackings in the country's capital are up over 300 percent this past year.

D.C.'s Metropolitan Police Department said several carjackings are performed by juveniles.

"We've noticed a high number of those crimes are perpetrated by young teens (13-16-year-olds) and the vehicles are frequently utilized to commit other crimes such as robberies and shootings," a division spokesperson told Fox News. "With the incidence of delivery motorists on the street because of the outbreak, this gives more chances to allow them to become victims of carjackings."

For Khan -- mourning the loss of his friend he believes that the killing of innocent sufferers such as Anwar is mainly being ignored throughout the nation, as crime rates spike in important cities throughout the pandemic.

"Muslim, as well as any other lifestyle, things," he explained. "And yeah, there's, you know, a few inherent things which don't make the headlines. And likely Muslim lives is just one of these."

Khan stated Anwar"was among people that believed in hard work. And I admire that.

He added he would inform his buddy this message:"Your life issues just as every other life. All lives are valuable."

A GoFundMe page based in Anwar's honour has increased over $1 million.

"We'll struggle for the rest of us and inform our story which we're still here, first generation, second generation, and we all work hard as another race," Khan said. "We all must be on equal footing."
