NAROWAL: A young motorbike rider was Thursday killed after his bike collided with a vehicle of Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz’s security squad in Chandowal area of Narowal district.

The district police officer (DPO) said the vehicles were going to Kartarpur for CM Maryam's security.

The elite security squad’s vehicle hit the motorcycle while trying to overtake it, he said.

The chief minister was visiting the Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur today to address a gathering of pilgrims on the occasion of the Baisakhi Mela.

The youngster’s body was shifted to the Narowal district headquarters hospital, while an FIR was lodged on behalf of the victim’s family, he said.

The DPO said after investigation, an "indiscriminate legal action" would be taken against those responsible.

Police said the case against the incident was filed by the victim’s cousin at the Saddar police station, in which he sought action from the authorities on the “injustice incurred” to them.

In the FIR, he mentioned that he was working at his shop when he came to know that the government vehicle hit his cousin Abu Bakar and ran.

"My cousin succumbed to his injuries and passed away at the DHQ hospital," said the cousin.
