LAHORE: Two robbers killed a man on putting resistance during an armed robbery in the Masti Gate police precinct on Thursday. The police said that Abdul Khaliq (40), a father of four, was running a shop inside the Walled City for many years.

Two armed motorcyclists intercepted him near Pani Wala Talab in the Masti Gate, and snatched a mobile phone and Rs 90,000 from him. On offering resistance, they fired at him and fled. Khaliq died on the way to Mayo Hospital. The police have registered a case against unidentified robbers on the complaint of Anwar Javed.
