A police official was killed late Wednesday night and his two friends wounded in a targeted firing by two bike-riding snappers in G-11 Markaz in Islamabad. The assistant sub inspector (ASI) was an investigating officer and serving with the Ramna Police Station and was inquiring some criminals involved in heinous offences. The unknown attackers managed to escape from the scene after they accomplished their task. ASI Mohammad Zulfiqar, along with his two friends, was on way to his house in G-8 on his car when two bike-riding gunmen intercepted the car and started firing at the police official and he died on the spot while two others, Mohammad Yousuf and Murtaza, wounded critically and were shifted to PIMS hospital. This is certainly a sad incident and has created new waves in the capital city. This event was ignored by the media and should have been highlighted by the media as the police forces have been trying to make a safe environment. Let’s just hope that the main culprits are caught and justice is served.
