Five people died in five different incidents on Friday. In the first incident, Riaz, 35, a tailor, was shot dead by a security guard over a minor issue in the Johar Town Police precincts.
The victim had a shop in the Johar Town Market near Shah Di Khoi. According to police, security guard Arif quarreled with Riaz over a minor issue and exchanged harsh words. Arif was infuriated and allegedly shot the victim. Riaz was rushed to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. After being informed, police reached the spot and arrested Arif. Police have registered a case against the accused under Section 302 of Pakistan Penal Code on complaint of the victim’s brother Altaf.
