  1. According to the injured, they were very cruel in nature. They opened fire on his secretary, on first 2 bullets secretary was dead, but they shoot him once again. Secretary fell upon the pajero , they opened 4th fire on secretary. When secretary was completely died , lying on ground they again shoot him on his heart. There was similar story with others.

  2. the arrogance of the crooked gilanis can be summed up by the statement “I will make sure there is no election in multan if he is not recovered”-pakistan does not belong to you or your father.You live by the sword you die by the sword-why is your brothers life so precious to hold multan to ransom? What you are seeing now is the fruits of what gilani family has sown!INobody should at all be surprised if this has all been stage managed by the gilani themselves.
