3 hurt as college guard opens fire for picking dates off tree in Sadiqabad


Rahim Yar Khan, July 7 (TNS): At least three people were injured as a security guard of a local college opened fire over a minor issue.

According to officials, the incident occurred when young men were picking some dates off the palm trees within Iqra Degree College at Sadiqabad, a town in South Punjab, near Rahim Yar Khan.

The security guard stopped them but young men kept picking dates off the trees which provoked the guard, who then, opened direct fire.

As a result of firing three men sustained injuries who – later on – shifted to nearby hospital by Rescue 1122 personnel who rushed to the scene soon after the incident.

The injured men were residents of Haq-Town of Sadiqabad and identified as Nauman, Adnan and Saaim.
