Lahore: Youth found dead
LAHORE, Feb 3: A 25-year-old youth was found dead in a plot near Dubanpura with multiple torture marks on his body on Thursday.
Sabzazar police claimed that Zulfiqar Ali was a robber involved in many incidents of crime. The Sabzazar DSP said the preliminary investigation suggested that Zulfiqar might have been killed by his accomplices. He was killed with a sharp-edged weapon.
He said four criminals had shot at and injured a citizen, Saqib, in the Sabzazar area a couple of days ago. The area people captured one of the fleeing robbers, later identified as Iftikhar, and handed him over to the police.
A case was registered against the four suspects on the complaint of injured Saqib. He said the arrested suspect, Iftikhar, admitted that Zulfiqar was his accomplice.
The body was shifted to a city morgue for an autopsy. The police have registered a case against the alleged killers.
