LAHORE:A man was beaten to death with clubs and iron rods while his daughter injured by unidentified suspects in their house in the Johar Town area on Thursday morning.

Reportedly, three unidentified persons barged into the house of Yousaf, tortured him and his daughter Zainab with iron rods and clubs. Zainab Yousaf undergoing treatment in hospital said that the suspects came to the first floor and told her that they had tied up her father. She saved her life by hiding herself in a washroom.

Police have registered an FIR on the complaint of the victim’s another daughter, Amna Yousaf who told police that her father had called her on Whatsapp and told that three unidentified suspects had entered the house. She rushed to the home with her husband and found her father‘s body lying in the courtyard and her sister severely injured.

The initial police investigations suggested that the perpetrators were the acquaintances and the motive behind the gruesome matter was a personal grudge or vengeance. No valuables from the house were missing. The circumstantial evidences suggested that the perpetrators were not interested in looting or grabbing anything from the house, an investigations officer said.

He also expressed that the suspects must be confident or influential persons as they did not attempt to manipulate crime scene as it happened in such offences, he added. The IGP Punjab Rao Sardar Ali Khan has taken notice of the incident and sought a report from CCPO Lahore.
