The two vehicles were fired upon by unidentified pillion riders at quite a close distance, on NIPA fly- over, leaving the two guards dead and rendering driver of one of the cars severely injured.
The Governor while expressing gratitude that Mufti Usmani and his family remained unhurt said there had been reports of threats being received by the scholar for past few weeks.
