Separately, a complainant identified as Noman told police that unknown individuals had abducted his wife. Two people were injured while resisting a robbery in Taxila.

One of the victims, Waqar, told the Taxila police that he was on his way home with a friend when three masked individuals on a motorcycle intercepted them and stole cash, mobile phones and other valuables from them at gunpoint.

In addition, Attock police arrested 11 people and recovered narcotics from them.
