A man and a teenage boy were shot dead by their opponents in separate incidents in Chak Jhumra on Monday.
According to the police, 35-year-old Aslam Khursheed had a property dispute with his paternal cousins. The suspects, including Yasir and his brother Nasir, opened fire on Aslam, leaving him injured.
He was shifted to a hospital but he succumbed to the injuries. Separately, Nasir Yaseen and others allegedly opened fire on 15-year-old Mohammed Javed and injured him. Javed was shifted to the Civil Hospital in Samundri where he succumbed to the injuries.
