LAHORE Police on Tuesday claimed to have killed an alleged dacoit in an 'encounter in Nishter Colony area. The police said that two suspects were on their way on a motorbike when some four Mujahid Squad personnel waved them to stop near a local bazaar at Nishter Colony. The suspected men did not stop and opened firing at the police team instead. One of the accused persons sustained multiple bullet wounds when the police party retaliated, the police maintained. The Mujahid Squad personnel, however, remained safe in the shootout although the accused sprayed several bullets on them. An on-duty police officer said that one dacoit was killed on the spot while his accomplice managed to flee from the site. He further said that a national identity card recovered from the pockets of the deceased person identified him as Sarfraz, a resident of Ferozwala. The body was shifted to the City morgue for autopsy. Further investigations are underway.
