In retaliatory firing, two suspects got injured and were held while the other two were booked after a chase. The police officials also seized weapons from the suspects’ possession while their motorbikes did not have registration plates.

The injured suspects have been identified as Faraz and Yasir while the other two are named Shujat and Adil. The officials said that the suspects are nominated in different criminal acts across Rawalpindi, Islamabad and Lahore. Their criminal record from other districts of the province has been summoned.
