VEHARI: Police have failed to find any clue to four members of a dacoits’ gang which kept police engaged for three days near Chak 113-WB and killed a tracker and a constable in the shootout.
The outlaws who had taken refuge in corn fields managed to break the police siege laid by over 500 policemen from Multan, Lodhran, Khanewal and Vehari. Elite force and four armoured vehicles had also been involved in the operation. No official was ready to explain that how the outlaws managed their escape in the presence of hundreds of personnel.
Talking to the media, Mailsi DSP Shabbir Warraich said the body of one of the dacoits, Khalid, had been handed over to his family after autopsy at DHQ Hospital.
Khalid, of Muzaffargarh, was carrying Rs2m head money. He was a member of Chotu gang which had been active in Rahim Yar Khan district in the recent past. The DSP said five facilitators of the gang – Zahid, Nawaz, Safdar, Shahid and Imran, had been arrested. He said search for the fleeing outlaws was on.
