Lahore DIG Operations Sohail Chaudhry told reporters without naming the political party outside a hospital that the incident occurred as the police were cracking down on activists who were “taking the law into their own hands and doing hooliganism”. 

“When the police party reached the home of an activist — Sajid Hussain, an unidentified person opened fire from its rooftop, the DIG said.

“A bullet hit the upper part of the constable’s chest, which is a very critical area. A lot of effort was made [to save him] but when we reached here (the hospital), he had become frail.”

The policeman later succumbed to his wounds, DIG Chaudhry added.
