LAHORE: Unknown gunmen opened fire on the house of Pakistan Muslim League Quaid (PML-Q) chief Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and his brother PML-Q president Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, Express News reported on Friday.

According to eye witnesses, two gunmen riding a motorcycle opened fire on the house present on Zahoor Elahi road. Over a dozen bullets were fired in the attack.

The gunmen fled the area after continuous firing for a few minutes.

They were successful in escaping because Zahoor Elhai road (on which the houses were present) has many routes branching out from it.

The police reached the area and started investigating the attack. They could not determine the kinds of weapon used.

Spokesperson for the PML-Q chief Chaudhry Iqbal clarified that both the brothers had gone to Islamabad, hence, were not present when the incident took place.

He also said that an FIR would be filed right away.

A dozen bullets were fired in a few seconds by 1 gun man, most likely a sub-machine gun was used. With the shells of the bullets can't our police even now identify what kind of weapon was used? With this caliber of cops no wonder the country is in such a mess. They should not have even bothered to come and investigate.

Any doubts that this attack wasn't from zia-ul-haq leftovers?
