He received critical bullet injuries and died on the spot. The body was shifted to the DHQ Hospital, Kasur, for postmortem. Raids were being conducted to arrest the suspects.

Meanwhile, an alleged bandit with injuries was arrested during a “police encounter” at Bhonki Morh, in the limits of Sadr Police Station. Police allegedly seized a pump action gun from the accused.

A police team was taking an under custody accused Yasin for recovery of looted valuables when his three accomplices attacked the police team with firearms in a bid to get their accomplice released.

The police returned fire in self-defence. As a result, an attacker, Jehangir aka Jehangiri, sustained bullet injuries and was arrested by police. The police shifted the injured suspect to THQ Pattoki for treatment.

The alleged bandit was wanted by police in more than 10 cases of robbery, street crime, etc., police said. Teams had been constituted for the arrest of fleeing outlaws.
