Banker, guard among seven killed over property dispute in Gujrat

Seven people, including a bank officer, police constable and passer-by were killed when armed motorcyclists fired at their car on Monday.
According to police, two armed motorcyclists fired at a double cabin vehicle of bank officer Muhammad Sharif in tehsil Kharian of Gujrat in the Guliana Police precincts. As a result, six people traveling in the car and an 11-year-old passer-by were killed on the spot while the assailants fled.
Those killed included Sharif, Police Constable Shafique, Raja Mubeen, Raja Usman, Raja Mehboob and Raja Younis while identity of the passer-by could not be confirmed. Police said that the firing was the result of an old property dispute. Raja Asghar, brother of the bank officer, was killed around six months ago in a firing incident over the same property dispute.
A case was registered against unidentified assailants and police started searching for them. The killing spread fear and panic in the area and people demanded the murderers be arrested. Families of the deceased placed the bodies on the main highway to protest against the incident. The enraged protesters also pelted stones, injuring three policemen.
