RAWALPINDI:

A trucker allegedly killed the security guard of a filling station for telling him to move his punctured trailer truck from the entrance point. Rawat police officials said that the 45-year-old victim Wasif Hussain worked at a local fuel station. Muhammad Irfan’s trailer truck got punctured just at the entry of the fuel station and it blocked the point. The security guard asked Irfan to move his vehicle a little forward to make way for other vehicles, however, this triggered a scuffle between them. The driver snatched the gun from the security guard and fired shots at him and fled. Hussain sustained serious injuries and was rushed to the District Headquarters (DHQ) Hospital but succumbed to the wounds. Police handed over the body to the heirs after legal formalities and registered a case against the trucker.
