In Khanewal, a vehicle near Gharat bridge became the scene of a deadly confrontation, leaving two individuals fatally shot and another wounded. All the victims were members of the same family. Prompt response from rescue personnel led to the transfer of the deceased and injured to DHQ Khanewal. Authorities have confirmed that the incident was a grim consequence of an ongoing enmity.
