The Lahore High Court (LHC) ordered the Sheikhupura DPO to ensure action according to the law against Muridke City Police SHO Akran an ASI Khalil and four constables namely Asif, Tanveer, Shahid and others responsible for a fake shootout near Bangla Pulli Muridke in which a man was killed.

The petitioner Shahid Mehmood, a resident of Jehangir Park submitted a petition in the LHC in which he mentioned that his younger brother Zahid Mehmood was going to Muridke from Shahdra on a bike. When he reached near Bangla Pulli, the Muridke City Police party led by SHO Akram stopped his brother and asked some questions. After being infuriated, ASI Khalil shot his brother dead and later declared it a shootout.

The LHC Single Bench court after listening to arguments, declared the shootout factious and fabricated. The court ordered registration of a case against the policemen.
