The police said Muhammad Tariq, of Shadipura, Daroghawala, and his cousin Umair were going to Okara on a motorcycle when the robbers shot at them for putting up resistance.
Tariq, who received three bullets, succumbed to his wounds at Jinnah Hospital while his pillion, Umair, was being treated there. A case under sections 302 and 394 of the PPC has been registered.
In another incident, unidentified people took away Rs257,000 in cash after strangling the janitor of a boutique in G-Block of Gulberg. The Naseerabad police said 45-year-old Bashir Ahmad, of Phoolnagar, was found hanged with the hook of a ceiling fan.
The SHO said they reached the boutique in response to an emergency call, removed the body and sent it for autopsy. He said the victim was first strangled with telephone wire and then his body was hanged with the ceiling fan to give it a suicide twist. He said the suspects stole cash from the safe and also tried to damage the CCTV cameras before fleeing.
He said a case under Section 460 of the PPC had been registered on the complaint of Umer Fiaz, the boutique’s finance manager.
