FAISALABAD - Two officers of Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited (ZTBL) were gunned down by unidentified bike riders on their way to workplace on Satiana Road Tuesday morning.
According to details, two employees of Zaria Taraqiati Bank Limited (ZTBL), Manager Rana Naveed and Deputy Manager Mazhar Aziz, were going to Satiana branch of ZTBL for performing their duty when two bike riders opened fire on their vehicle at Awan Wali Puli, Satiana Road, killing them on the spot.
On receiving information, police rushed to the site and shifted the dead bodies to Allied Hospital for autopsy. After medico-legal formalities, the bodies were handed over to the families.
According to the police preliminary report, ZTBL Manager Rana Naveed had an old enmity which caused the incident. The police have registered a case and started investigation.
Rana Naveed of Chak 31-GB and Deputy Manager Mazhar Aziz Gul, a resident of Chak Ram Douwali, were on their way to the bank when they were killed on the spot. The attackers managed to escape from the scene after committing the dual murder.
Police sources said the double murder could be either due to personal enmity or the handiwork of some landlords who got loans from the bank and were interested in getting them written off and the two officers refused to do so.
Meanwhile, ZTBL workers as well as family members and relatives of the slain bankers staged protest against the incident. They demanded immediate arrest of the killers.
