Suspended official shoots colleague in Lahore
LAHORE: A 50-year-old employee of the Punjab Highways Department was killed after his suspended colleague opened fire at him in the main office building situated on Lake Road on Tuesday. Mozang police said head clerk Khalid Farooq Anjum was shot to death by Saqlain Shah, who is gurdawar in the department, in the presence of other staff.
Quoting Anjum`s colleagues, police said Shah suspected that Anjum, father of four and a resident of Sheikhupura district, first got him suspended and now was a hurdle in the way of his restoration.
They got into an argument before the shooting, a police official said, adding that Shah fired shots thrice but only one bullet hit Anjum in the chest. Anjum died minutes after he was admitted to Mayo Hospital.
