FAISALABAD: Seven dacoits killed a borstal jail warden and injured seven others, including the assistant superintendent, after robbing them of Rs 2.4 million near Burj Plaza on Jaranwala Road on Tuesday.


Six borstal jail officials were on their way by an official van after drawing the salary amount of staffers from the SBP when seven dacoits, riding a car and a motorcycle, intercepted and looted cash from them.


The dacoits also opened fire on them. As a result, Jail Warden Muhammad Asif was killed on the spot while five other jail officials - Assistant Superintendent Asif, Abdul Rauf, Nawaz, Mubashir and driver Imran - were injured. Two passers-by, including Sana, also sustained bullet injuries in the incident. After receiving information of the incident, police cordoned off the area but failed to apprehend the culprits.
