Two men were killed and three people injured, including women and children, after Chotu gang members opened fire Thursday in Rajanpur.
The incident took place in Katcha Jamal, in the district, according to police. The area’s residents are terrified by an Attaullah Butt-led gang there.
Butt has been involved with his accomplices in spreading violence and terror in the region. They allegedly have also robbed and kidnapped people, the residents said.
“We have complained multiple times to the police but they have failed to do anything,” one man said, adding that the area has now become a police no-go zone.
For a long time, the police were on the lookout for Butt but failed to arrest him. Previously, by shooting rocket launchers at it, the gang set a whole town on fire.
