LAHORE: Three people were allegedly shot dead in two incidents in the city on Tuesday.
The police said two young men were alleged murdered in the posh area of Y Block in the jurisdiction of Defence C police station while the other was shot dead in Shadman.
Cantonment Division Operations SP Eesa Skhera said Shahzad and his relative Hassan were going by a bike in Y block of DHA when two unidentified armed men fired on them and fled the scene.
Both suffered multiple bullet injuries and died on the spot, he said adding that apparently the incident was result of an enmity between the two parties of Hadiara area. He said the initial police inquiries suggested that residents of Hadiara had lodged a murder case, nominating nearly 10 people including fathers of Shahzad and Hassan.
The SP said the nominated suspects had secured bail from the court and it seemed that the attackers (complainants of FIR lodged with Hadiara police station) killed the two young men in revenge. The police shifted bodies to the city morgue for autopsy and are awaiting complaints from the families to lodge a case.
About other murder incident, a police official said Salamat Ali (45) was shot dead at Tollinton Market following a brawl with a local who was yet to be identified.
He said the suspect had fled the scene shortly after killing Salamat and the police shifted the body to the city morgue for autopsy.
Further investigations are under way. — Staff Reporter
