Abdul Rashid, a third youth who survived the firing, told police in a statement that they were returning after completing the painting work on a motorbike when four suspects surrounded them on two motorbikes and pointed weapons at them. Rashid said after being asked to stop by the robbers, they were parking the bike near a hotel but the robbers thought that they were fleeing and opened fire. The young man said that he sought help from the people but no one came to his aid and two friends lost their lives. Meanwhile, a case of the incident has been registered at the Sachal police station. The police said that the labourers were targeted when they were returning home after finishing their work at Ghazi Goth.
