According to police sources, Mir Gull and Karam Ellahi, residents of Tibba Ghareeb Shah withdrew cash amounting to Rs1.65 million from Habib Bank Old grain market branch and left the bank on their motorcycle.

As they reached railway overhead bridge near Adda Khanpur, two suspects, riding 125 motorcycle intercepted them at gunpoint and demanded the money. But Mir Gull resisted upon which one of the robbers opened fire injuring him. The robbers looted Rs1.4 million and easily escaped on the busy road.
