Lahore: Man killed over monetary dispute
LAHORE: A 35-year-old man was killed by his brother-in-law over a monetary dispute in Shafeeqabad on Tuesday. The police said Suleman, the son of Ghulam Muhammad of Block-4, Aftaab Chowk, had a dispute with his brother-in-law, Imran, over monetary affairs of the house he was living in.
On Tuesday, they exchanged some harsh words with each other over the same issue, but one of their relatives, Ghulam Mustafa, interfered and tried to settle the matter. They ignored him and Imran, and his accomplice, Ashraf, hit Suleman and his cousin, Rizwan, with flowerpots. The accused fled from the scene after injuring the two cousins.
Suleman succumbed to his injuries on his way to hospital while Rizwan was admitted to the Mayo Hospital. The police have registered a case against the alleged killers on the complaint of Ghulam Mustafa.
BISE employee succumbs to injuries An employee of the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education (BISE), Lahore, on Tuesday succumbed to his injuries, two and half months after he had been stabbed by his neighbours over a minor issue, in Wahdat Colony.
The police claimed to have arrested six accused, who are now on judicial remand.
The investigation officer of the case said Muhammad Qasim of Nawabpura had a clash with his neighbours, Muhammad Nadeem and others, for teasing Qasim’s sisters.
An exchange of harsh words took place between them, during which Qasim snubbed Nadeem and warned him not to tease his sisters again.
He said Nadeem nurtured a grudge against Qasim. On December 5, 2007, Nadeem, his father, Muhammad Saleem, and their four relatives intercepted Qasim and his family on their way back home and attacked Qasim with knives.
The accused fled while Qasim was rushed to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where he was operated upon. He was released after some days but around 20 days ago, his condition started to deteriorate. He was readmitted to the same hospital where he succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday.
