Passerby killed in exchange of gunfire
A passerby was killed here in an exchange of gunfire between two Sunni Muslim groups, police said yesterday.
The gunfight occurred between supporters of the Dawaat-e-Islami and the Ahl-e-Hadith groups in a low-income neighbourhood in the east of the city, police and ambulance workers said.
“It was a clash between two groups who accused each other of insulting the Holy Prophet (PBUH),” said a senior police official. “One passerby was killed in the crossfire between them.”
