LAHORE:

Four members of a family, including two children, were gunned down near Ferozwala in Punjab on Wednesday.

The deceased family members were reportedly residents of Batapur and were travelling on GT Road when they were intercepted by unidentified suspects and shot dead.

Police teams reached the site of the incident soon after and removed the bodies from the crime scene for medico-legal processing.

Initial investigation by police suggests the family was gunned down over old enmity.

The provincial IGP, Rao Sardar, has taken notice of the incident and has asked the relevant officers to submit a report on the same.

The province's top cop said the investigation is being carried out and police are searching for the suspects.

Earlier in October, three suspects, including a woman, were arrested in the murder case of three brothers in Shahdara Town, Lahore.

The deranged suspects had opened fire after a brother of the three victims scolded a minor boy for sitting on the bonnet of his guests’ car parked outside his home.
