2 traders injured resisting robbery in Lahore
LAHORE: Robbers shot at and injured two traders during a shop robbery and a youth injured by robbers a few days ago died at a hospital in the city on Tuesday, police said.
Two robbers entered an electric store near Main Phattak Kharak in Sabzazar police limits and tried to loot cash and valuables.
During the course of time, shopkeepers Hanif and Nadeem offered resistance which led to the firing by outlaws who escaped empty handed.
The victims, who received two bullets each, were admitted to Jinnah Hospital.
A youth died of a bullet wound at Mayo Hospital on Tuesday four days after he was injured by two robbers following a street crime incident in Muhammadnagar on Allama Iqbal Road.
Qila SHO Qadeer Ahmad said one of two robbery suspects had been traced and would be arrested shortly.
He said 22-year-old Majid Nazir of Muhammad Nagar raised an alarm and tried to chase two robbers riding a bike, soon after they looted a cell phone from his friend Yusraj.
One of the robbers opened fire on Majid and escaped.
Majid suffered a bullet and was admitted to Mayo Hospital. The SHO said the victim got some recovery at night, but his condition deteriorated in the morning.
