Two identified persons shot and killed a woman, who was later found out to be a lawyer, in Hiran Minar, Sheikhupura.
According to the police, the lawyer, Alia Shehzadi, was going to the local court when unidentified persons shot her dead Tuesday morning. Shehzadi was a resident of an area near Hiran Minar.
The district bar association has announced a strike to protest killing of the lawyer.
Around two months back, a local lawyer was gunned down near Nankana Sahib.
Advocate Malik Saleem Latif was on his way to a local court on a motorbike along with his son Advocate Farhan, when the former was targetted and shot at by “unidentified attackers”.
The deceased was a relative of Nobel laureate Abdus Salam.
The murder sparked outrage in the legal fraternity that boycotted the courts.
