Narowal: The Sialkot police in Pakistan injured two innocent persons while chasing three robbery suspects on Monday, media reports said.

According to police, three suspects on a motorcycle held hostage guards and staff and stole Rs3 million, mobile phones and a motorcycle from a petrol pump on Khadim Ali Shah Road before fleeing, reports Dawn News.

A patrolling squad of Muradpur police signalled three people riding a motorcycle to stop as soon as they were alerted. Instead of obeying the police, they attempted to leave, forcing the officers to open fire. Two of the riders were injured.

The injured people were rushed to  Allama Iqbal Teaching Hospital in Sialkot for treatment.

They were identified as Sialkot residents Malik Haider and Nauman Yaqub, reports Dawn News.

The patrolling police said they opened fire on them, taking them as the suspects of the petrol pump robbery.

The Civil Lines police registered an FIR of robbery incident against three unidentified people on the complaint of Irfan Malik, petrol pump manager.
