TOBA TEK SINGH. A young man was shot dead in the name of honour, six months after the woman he was allegedly having an affair with was killed by her brother at Chak 271/GB in the Rajana police area.
The victim, identified as Tanveer Gadhi, was going to Rajana on his motorcycle when the suspect, Gulraiz Gadhi, and his eight accomplices intercepted him and shot him dead.
About six months back, Gulraiz had murdered his sister after allegedly seeing her with Tanveer who had escaped from the scene.
Tanveer’s relatives said a case of the girl’s murder was registered against Gulraiz but the complainant, being a family member, pardoned him and he was released from the jail. Now another case has been registered against Gulraiz and his accomplices. Police have arrested two of the suspects.
