Complainant Fazal Ghani lodged an FIR with the Lahore police station saying that on Monday he was informed that his 19-year-old son Shah Swar was found dead in the Shaheed Baba graveyard in Jalsai village.
"When I reached there I found him dead along with 18-year-old Murad and Waqar. All of them were friends and residents of Jalsai village. They had been shot. I don't know who killed them as they had no personal enmity with anyone," he said.
