Islamabad: Fit of fury claims life
ISLAMABAD: A man was allegedly gunned down and two others injured by a retired colonel and his accomplices after a dispute over a collision of cars in the capital’s suburbs, police said on Saturday.
The incident took place in Village Kagnah’s in the limits of Nilor Police Station where the cars of the victim Nazakat Hussain and Col (retired) Tasduq Hussain collided. “We do not know who was at fault for accident,” said a policeman.
It led to a scuffle between the two, police said. After the scuffle, Nazakat along with his two uncles went to Tasaduq’s farm, some three kilometres away from the place of accident, to settle the issue.
But in the village, there was heated argument as Nazakat left the retired colonel’s place in anger. Police said the colonel and his accomplices chased and opened fire at Nazakat and his maternal uncles.
The attackers escaped from the scene leaving the injured behind.
Police said the victim and the accused were property dealers and owned large tract of land near the village.
A murder case has been registered against the retired colonel on the complaint of victim’s brother, Mohammad Rafaqat.
