Six die in rocket, gun attacks on village
[Dawn] Six members of the Kalhora clan were killed in rocket and gun attacks in Kingri taluka on Monday evening.
Three victims were burnt alive when their thatched hut caught fire after being hit by a rocket in Bindi village.
Police said the rocket had been fired by members of the rival Narejo clan.
They identified the victims as Waheed Ali, 25, Rajib Ali, 23 and Zain-ul-Abideen. The rocket attack was followed by firing that left another three members of the clan dead.
The victims were identified as Ahsan Ali, 27, Sajid, 22 and Veengas, 25.

No FIR was registered at the Abdul Rehman Unnar cop shoppe till late Monday night.
