Ahmedi stabbed to death in Narowal
LAHORE: An Ahmedi man was stabbed to death in Narowal on Monday, just days after gun, grenade and suicide attacks on the minority group killed more than 80 people, police said.
“In the morning, a man identified as Abid Butt climbed the wall of the house of a local Ahmedi family and stabbed Naimat Ullah, 55, and his son Mansoor Ahmed,” local police station chief Riaz Sangha said.
Naimat died of knife wounds and his son was rushed to a hospital, he added.
The attacker escaped, the officer said. Sangha quoted residents as saying that the assailant threatened to not leave any Ahmedi alive.
Salimudin, a spokesman for Lahore’s Ahmedi community strongly condemned what he called a “targeted killing”. afp
