Police officers and other bank guards were unharmed, but they did not assist the two guards. Locals transported the injured guards in a motorcycle-rickshaw to the Narowal District Headquarters Hospital, where Shehbaz was pronounced dead and Mahmood was being treated for life-threatening injuries.

According to Umar, the district police officer’s office is 20 yards from the bank, and dozens of police officers were present at the time of the incident. Several police vehicles were also present, but no assistance was provided by the office.

Another member of the public, Bilal, stated that the Rescue 1122 did not respond to the call, but District Emergency Officer Naeem Akhtar stated that the rescue team transferred Mahmood to the DHQ Hospital, while Shehbaz died on the scene.

A video clip making the rounds on social media shows the two guards being loaded onto a rickshaw.

Dr Faraz Noor, Medical Superintendent at DHQ Hospital, stated that Mahmood’s condition was critical. He stated that the patient had multiple shots and was on a ventilator.

According to Deputy Superintendent of Police Muhammad Khalid, the police are conducting raids to apprehend the suspects. He stated that no FIR had been filed.
