GUJRANWALA: Iranian border forces have killed two migrants from Gujranwala on the border with Pakistan, the families said on Tuesday.
Lakht-e-Abbas and Sarfaraz, in their 20s, were trying to illegally cross into Iran when they were spotted and shot by the Iranian border guards. They died on the spot.
Eleven people are still missing.
“My son left the home on March 13 carrying Rs. 50,000,” Abbas’s father said. “The agent contacted me yesterday and asked me to collect his dead body.”
A group of 13 young men mostly from Punjab had left for Iran on March 13 with a human smuggler, who was identified by the victim’s family as Faisal.
