Faisalabad: Fleeing dacoit killed, 2 accomplices thrashed
FAISALABAD: A dacoit was killed while two of his accomplices were overpowered by residents of Haseeb Shaheed Colony, Satiana Road, on Sunday. Four dacoits entered the house of Umar Gujjar, tied the inmates and put them in a room. The dacoits collected cash and gold ornaments and tried to flee on a motorcycle-rickshaw after resorting to firing. As the dacoits left the house, Umar with his neighbour Afzal Gujjar started chasing the dacoits. On this, the dacoits opened fire at Umar and Afzal, but they remained safe.
Umar and Afzal also retaliated. As a result, one of the four dacoits was killed. In the meantime, residents of Haseeb Shaheed Colony, who were also chasing the criminals, overpowered two dacoits and thrashed them. After receiving information, Batala Colony police reached the spot and saved both the dacoits from the people’s wrath. The fourth dacoit, however, managed to escape from the scene. The police have registered a case.
