QUETTA: Two brothers were shot dead in Baghbana tehsil of Khuzdar district on Tuesday.

Levies Force officials said that some armed men barged into the house of one Abdul Rehman in Kiftari area of Baghbana tehsil and opened fire, resulting in the death of his two sons. “The victims were targeted by unidentified armed men when they were sleeping in the courtyard of their house,” the officials said, adding that the brothers received multiple bullet injuries and died on the spot.

Levies Force personnel rushed to the site soon after receiving information about the incident and shifted the bodies to the district hospital in Khuzdar. The deceased were identified as Mohammad Rafiq Bajoi and Mohammad Akbar Bajoi.

The motive behind the killings was said to be an old tribal dispute in which many people had already been killed. Later the bodies were handed over to the family of the deceased after completion of medico-legal formalities.
