MULTAN: Three policemen were killed while another official, along with a passerby, was injured when armed men targeted their van near Pul Rango in the Kabirwala Saddar police precinct on Thursday.

A police mobile was stationed near Rango Bridge, some 30 kilometres from here, to receive a judge of the Lahore High Court’s Multan Bench, when three armed men appeared there in a car and started indiscriminate firing on them.

Three policemen, including van driver constable Usman Ghani, constable Muhammad Farooq and constable Allah Rakha, died on the spot while head-constable Ghulam Shabbir and passerby Khalil Ahmed were injured. The injured were admitted to Nishtar Hospital.

The doctors declared the condition of the head-constable critical.

Station House Officer Wasim Abbas Sial said the police were investigating but no arrest had been made so far.
