|Lahore: Cops raid ceremony, 2 killed|
13 August 2012
Lahore: Punjab Police on Sunday allegedly killed two people in the middle of a ceremony in Nawaz Sharif Colony area of Lahore, a metropolitan of Pakistan.
According to eyewitnesses, a police party in a raid-like-style crashed into a ceremony and started beating up a man.
Startled by the brutality of Punjab police, the other attendees intervened to save him from further torture as the blows of gunstocks had already injured him seriously, they added. That was when the cops opened fire, which killed two people on the spot, the eyewitnesses said giving vivid details.
The firing left three persons injured, including a three-year-old.
This savagery mobilized an angry mob, which swooped upon the feral cops, who, fearing a probable lynching, managed to flee leaving their weapons as well as motorcycles behind.
Following the tragic incident the local residents set tyres ablaze on Ferozpur Road and blocked it for traffic vowing to protest until justice was served.
