RAWALPINDI: Punjab's Dolphin Force gunned down two bikers who resorted to "firing when asked to stop" here in the city's Morgah area, a Rawalpindi Police spokesperson said Tuesday. Both motorists, however, died later.
The spokesperson said that officers of the elite security unit — set up to deal with street crime — had signalled the motorcyclists to stop but they opened fire instead. The officials then shot them in retaliatory fire, during which they were injured.
Both suspects were immediately shifted to the hospital where they succumbed to their injuries, the spokesperson said, adding that they had both been identified.
Rawalpindi Police further claimed that both men were involved in multiple cases of murder and robbery.
