A man was killed over Rs20 in Lahore.
Zulfiqar repaired punctured tyres at a shop in Lahore where he and a customer had a confrontation over Rs20 four days ago, according to his family and witnesses. They said he asked a customer for Rs70 but he refused and only gave Rs50.
When Zulfiqar asked the yet unidentified man for the remaining Rs20, he became enraged and beat him up. He left saying that he would “deal with him in four days”.
Four days later, Zulfiqar was gunned down. A friend who was with him at the time of the attack identified his assailant as the same man from the tyre repair shop.
The police have lodged a case and are looking for the man. Other witnesses have also provided descriptions of the attacker.
Zulfiqar, 30, got married last year and has a two-month-old son. His mother and wife have appealed to the authorities to take notice of the incident.
