Lahore: 3 injured in post-election dispute
LAHORE: At least three political workers were injured, when their opponents opened fire, in the post-election violence in Nadirabad in South Cantonment police precinct on Wednesday. A police officer, requesting anonymity, said the supporters of the Pakistan Muslim League–Quaid’s (PML-Q) Arshad Jutt opened fire on members of another local resident Rashid Sindhu, who belonged to the PML-Nawaz (PML-N), a close aide of PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafiq.
The firing left three people injured who were rushed to a nearby hospital. The officer said both groups first exchanged harsh words, abused each other and then opened fire on each other. Cantonment Division Superintendent of police Ahmed Kamal, however, claimed that a group of men supporting Dilshaad and another supporting Usman, both cousins and neighbours, quarrelled with each other over which parties they would support. He said the two parties attacked each other with sticks, injuring a few. He admitted that the parties fired in the air, but said that no one was injured due to the firing. He said both groups were called to the police station for legal formalities.
