Lahore: 45-year-old man shot dead
LAHORE: A 45-year-old man was killed and his woman relative injured in a shooting near Nishat Mor in Cantonment on Saturday. South Cantonment police said Amjad of Maryam Colony was going on a motorcycle along with his relative, Nusrat, when his rival, Nadeem, along with accomplices opened fire. The suspects fled the scene after leaving the motorcyclists injured. Amjad succumbed to his wounds at a hospital. The police said Nadeem, a former constable, apparently killed Amjad as he had murdered the suspect’s brother a year ago following a children’s quarrel.
Amjad, a father of four, was released on bail from a jail a few days ago. The police said Nadeem had killed a man in police lock-up few hours after he was taken into custody in connection with the murder of his three sons. The police shifted the body for autopsy and registered a case against Nadeem and his accomplices.
