LAHORE: Gunmen on motorcycles shot dead a 37-year-old pharmacy owner from the Ahmadi community in Taunsa, police said on Thursday. The incident took place on Wednesday when four gunmen on two motorcycles rode up to the drug store owned by the victim, Ikramullah, and sprayed him with bullets before fleeing, police said. “Ikramullah was killed on the spot while the assailants fled on their motorcycles,” said Saleem Niazi, a senior local police officer. Police are searching for the attackers, he said, adding that the murder seemed religiously motivated. Saleemuddin, a community leader, condemned the killing. “Continuous, seditious propaganda against Ahmadis all over the country is a primary reason of these kinds of incidents,” he said in a statement.
