LAHORE: Three gunmen shot dead a Jamal Colony resident on Friday and injured a woman accompanying him over a rivalry, police said.
The deceased was identified as Bilal Ahmad (35).
Police said Bilal’s friends Ijaz, Amir and Afzal had nourished a grudge against him for his friendship with the woman, whose name is being withheld to protect his honour. Bystanders shifted them to hospital where Bilal was pronounced dead while the woman was said to be critical.
Police sent the body to morgue for autopsy and registered a case against the three assailants on the complaint of deceased’s maternal uncle Muhammad Shafique.
