LAHORE: Three robbers were killed while attempting to loot jewellery at a shop in Baghbanpura, police said on Saturday.

Four armed men forced their entry into a jewellery shop at Sirajpura market but the owners and employees opened fire on them which resulted in an exchange of fire. Three of the robbers were killed while two jewellers were injured.

Police took the bodies into their custody and shifted them to the morgue for autopsy after registering a robbery case.

Police said jewellers Shoaib and Waqas were shifted to the Mayo Hospital where Shoaib’s condition was stated to be critical.

Baghbanpura SHO Nasrullah said two of the robbers were identified as Ramzan of Lyari and Iftikhar of Sahiwal. Efforts were being made to identify others, he said, adding that police seized three pistols from the shop.

DSP Mian Muhammad Khalid told Dawn that a jeweller’s son, Hamza, alerted the market traders after seeing four armed men standing in front of their shop. He said when the robbers tried to enter the shop, the owner resisted and in an exchange of fire, three armed men were killed and the fourth managed to escape.

A number of people gathered there and protested against the robbery and street crime incidents in their area.

Great work.
I am very happy that they had the presence of mind and reacted fast enough to survive the attack.
But this being India, I am sure that a case will be registered and their guns would be seized by the Police and kept in police custody till the time the case is closed (probable a few years), leaving them defenseless during that period. As here in India, they just cant walk across and pick up new guns for their self defense during this period.

Kudos to the brave jewellers! My Johar to the Jauharis! :D

I hope the police seized only the dead bandit's pistols.
When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns!
