LAHORE:


An Ahmadi man was killed in Chenab Nagar (Rabwa), the headquarters of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, late on Monday.


Bilal Ahmed, 26, was an active member and paid worker of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya. His brother, Ghulam Tahir, is president of the Jamaat in his mohallah Darul Yamen, Rabwa.

He was shifted to the Allied Hospital, Faisalabad, where he succumbed to his injuries. He was laid to rest on Tuesday.
