RAWALPINDI:


A man was gunned down in Satellite Town on Friday in the limits of Banni Police Station.


The police while quoting Nadeem, brother of the deceased, said that Wasiq Ahmad was on the way back home after closing his shop when unidentified gunmen shot him dead.

He said the deceased received multiple injuries and was rushed to District Headquarters Hospital where he was declared dead.

The police said an FIR has been registered against unknown killers.

Immediately after the incident, a rumour started via social media that PML-N leader Muhammad Hanif Abbasi’s guard killed a PTI worker.

Even PTI chief Imran Khan said in his address at a public gathering in Mansehra that Abbasi’s bodyguard had killed a PTI worker.

However, when contacted, Nadeem said they have no affiliation with any party and the rumours were baseless.

It seems Wasiq family has been pressurized by PMLN to keep quite.

Seriously , you are reporting two days later and now you are relying more on Tribune more than PTI Chairman Imran Khan. The party leaders were there when Doctors were trying to save his life at hospital. Fauzia Kasuri has visited his home with other leaders. Asad Umar and other party leaders have talked to his family, but they are being pressurized not to pursue this in media or politically. He was a Tabdeeli Razakar, one can simply become TR without being affiliated with party.
