At least two people were killed in a drive-by shooting incident in the Niazi Town area within the limits of Rawalpindi’s Race Course Police Station.

CCTV footage of the daylight attack has gone viral on social media. In the CCTV footage, it can be seen that the accused shot and killed two persons fearlessly in the busiest street.

The footage, a copy of which is also available with The Express Tribune, shows two persons passing through the street on a motorcycle. In the meantime, three bike-riding suspects coming from behind suddenly opened fire on the motorcycle riders going ahead.

The victims have been identified as Tanveer and Bilal. It can be seen in the video that the accused escaped easily after the incident.

Upon receiving information, senior police officials and a team from Forensic Science Agency arrived at the spot, collected the evidence and shifted the bodies to the hospital for post-mortem.

Talking to The Express Tribune, Race Course SHO Inspector Raja Iftikhar said the victims belonged to Abbottabad and Hazara and were residing in Rawalpindi. He said a case will be registered on the arrival of their relatives. However, initial findings suggest that it was a result of a personal enmity.
