Lahore: Body of youth found
LAHORE: A 22-year-old man was found dead under mysterious circumstances in a pond near Shahpur Kanjaran on Monday. The Chuhng police said locals spotted the body of a man identified as Rehan, alias Sher Alam, of Kala Khitai Road, Shahdara, floating in the pond.
According to the police, Rehan fell into the pond and apparently drowned after he ran away to save his life from the firing of a rival group.
Members of a group led by Shaku, who used to lift sand/mud form their fields for construction projects, quarreled with members of Sohail group, who allegedly broke a water channel to get water for their lands a couple of days ago. The exchange of words led to exchange of fire between the two sides. Rehan, who was a member of Sohail group, apparently in a bid to avoid being shot at, ran away but fell in the pond.
The police said a case was earlier registered on the complaint of Shaku group against Sohail group and after the discovery of the body, a cross FIR had been lodged against Shaku group.
