LAHORE: A nine-year-old boy was shot dead and another sustained bullet injuries when the gunman of a PML-N leader opened fire at a public gathering in Chungi Amr Sidhu on Tuesday.

The victim has been identified as Mazhar, the son of Manzoor and the injured as Fahad, son of Hanif. According to locals, the public meeting was organised by PML-N leader Aslam Bhatti in connection with the election campaign of Khawaja Saad Rafique. SP Model Town said an unidentified gunman opened fire and, as a result, the two children received bullet wounds. They were rushed to hospital where Mazhar succumbed to his injuries, he added. Later, the area police arrested three suspects – Bilal, Sabir and Ramzan. However, no FIR of the incident has been registered as the police have reportedly been pressurising the victim’s family to change the contents of the application. The locals told reporters that a number of people were displaying weapons in sheer violation of the ban.
