As per local media reports, PSO Manzoor had gone to the market to buy milk and he was shot at near the entry gate of the PDP leader Pervez’s house.
Talking to media, PDP leader Pervez Ahmed said that this is the second attack on him since 2009. “My security cover was trimmed to a large extent despite the fact that I constantly face threats.”
“I don’t know why they are doing it. I have been repeatedly demanding security cover and instead they are cutting it down. I don’t know why they (BJP) are so afraid of PDP,” he added.
