JHANG: Four people died and two injured when unidentified gunmen opened fire on them near Rasikabad bus stop on Jhang-Shorkot Road on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, the victims were sitting outside their house when four assailants riding two motorcycles arrived there at 11.30am and opened fire on them with automatic weapons. As a result, Ghulam Murtaza, Waqar, Sarfraz and Rafiq were killed on the spot and two others sustained injuries.
