GUJRAT: Assailants shot dead a public prosecutor of Hafizabad in front of her house on Friday morning.

Police said Assistant District Public Prosecutor Naila Amjad would routinely go to a gym along with her husband Muhammad Zaman, a teacher at a private school. On Friday, they said, the couple left the house and the husband went in an adjacent street to bring his car when two motorcyclists shot at her and escaped.

Critically injured Naila Amjad breathed her last while being shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital of Hafizabad where doctors later conducted autopsy of the body.

Police registered a case against two unidentified suspects under sections 302 and 34 of Pakistan Penal Code on the report of Sajid Ali Awan, the brother of the deceased.
