Man shot dead over petty enmity


A middle-aged man was murdered in Shadbagh Police limits on Monday. Faysal Butt, resident of Tajpura and father of four children, was a cable operator in the area. The family of the deceased stated in an application to the police that the accused Haris had developed grudges against Faysal after Faysal stopped the former from using abusive language in the street after being inebriated. Last Friday, both had a verbal clash after which the accused shot Faysal and fled from crime scene. Faysal sustained serious a bullet injury in the head and was shifted to the hospital where he passed away on Monday. A case was registered against the accused under Section 324 of PPC on Friday upon a complaint from the deceased’s father.
