A man was shot dead by his cousin at his mother’s funeral on Wednesday in Faisalabad’s Mustafabad area.
The accused, who has been identified as Basharat, shot Shahid when the former approached him to seek an apology.
“We were walking together and he was on my left when I heard the sound of a tyre bursting,” a relative told to SAMAA TV. “When I checked where did the sound come from, Shahid dead.”
According to the police, the families had an ongoing dispute for the past two years. A day before the funeral, Basharat restored peace between the two families after asking for forgiveness.
He is being treated at Civil hospital’s prisoner ward. He was beaten up by the victim’s family. A case has also been registered against him.
