Well, an unusual kind of heist will send shock waves before the arrival of Eid, especially among the women of Islamabad.

As reported, gunmen have stolen more than 200 eid outfits from a tailor shop in the federal capital.

“I have been working in the area for the last 20 years and have customers who come to me from posh areas of Islamabad and Rawalpindi with branded and expensive fabrics,” he said.
