DERA MURAD JAMALI: Four people were gunned down by unknown attackers in the Baba Kot area of Nasirabad district on Sunday.

Police said Shahzad, Abdul Majeed, Barkat Ali and Khalid were on their way home by car when armed men lying in wait opened fire on them near the Murad Shakh area.

“All the four died on the spot,” a senior police officer said, adding that police rushed to the scene of crime after receiving information and shifted bodies to the district hospital Dera Murad Jamali.

The bodies were handed over to the grieving families after medico-legal formalities.

The cause of attack seemed to be old enmity, police said.

“We are investigating the incident and conducting raids for the arrest of the suspects,” police said.
