Kasur: Old enmity claims three lives
KASUR: Three people were killed and five passers-by were injured when a rival group allegedly opened fire on their opponents after a panchayat (reconciliatory meeting) in Raja Jang Bazaar, some 25 kilometres away from here, on Saturday evening failed to sort out their differences.
The panchayat was held to help diffuse old enmity between Meermah village’s Ibraheem and Amjad groups. When the meeting ended without any breakthrough, assailants belonging to Amjad group allegedly opened indiscriminate fire on their rivals, killing Ibraheem, Ismail and Ijaz on the spot while injuring five passers-by, Sohail, Ayub, Shahbaz, Ishaq and Hanif, who were taken to the DHQ Hospital. The Raja Jang police are investigating.
