Armed Robbers commit highway Robbery cum Dacoity on Lahore - Islamabad Motorway
ISLAMABAD: Unidentified armed robbers on Thursday looted several vehicles on the Lahore-Islamabad Motorway near Sheikupura and fled, in what appears to be yet another incident on a major highway where authorities seemed to have failed to respond on time.
Reports indicated that an unidentified number of the armed robbers blocked the highway by throwing trees on the road and looted the passengers.
The robbers also fired upon the vehicles to burst tyres to stop them.
The incident took place three kilometres away from the Sheikhupura Interchange on the M-2 Motorway toward Islamabad.
