2 robbers killed in encounter


The police killed two suspected robbers in an ‘encounter’ in the Soi Aasil area of Kahna Nau on Tuesday. Per reports, the police signalled two motorcyclists to stop at a picket at Soi Aasil but instead of stopping the men opened fire on the police. The police returned fire and were able to kill the two suspects after a 25-minute shootout. Liaquat, a 50-year-old passerby, was also injured in the crossfire. The Model Town SP told Pakistan Today that the suspects had held up a citizen Ameen Bhatti and his wife some minutes earlier before the shootout and deprived them of money and jewellery. He said that the police had been unable to identify the dead suspects as yet.
