LAHORE - A 45-year-old man was shot dead by his relatives during street fight in Misri Shah on Thursday. The killers fled the crime scene while the police have removed the body to the morgue for autopsy.

Resident of Aziz Road, Ayyub was tying his horse to a pole outside the house of Kashif when the latter asked the former not to do that. Both the neighbours exchanged harsh words over the issue.

A few minutes later, Kashif along with his accomplices including Akram, Jahangir, and Waseem stopped Ayyub in the street and started fighting.

In the meantime, Kashif took out a pistol and opened straight fire on Ayyub, who is said to be cousin of the alleged killer. The man sustained multiple bullet injuries and was rushed to a hospital where he was pronounced as brought dead. The police have registered a murder case against Kashif and his accomplices and are investigating with no arrest made yet.
