A man was gunned down and seven others sustained multiple injuries when gunmen opened fire inside a courtroom in Rajanpur on Friday.

The court was in session and the additional session judge was presiding over proceedings when the gunmen, disguised as Munshis of lawyers, barged into the courtroom and opened fire on their rivals.

As a result, seven persons were also seriously injured including two lawyers, four Munshis and a citizen.

The dead and the wounded, who had a long-running dispute with the attackers, were shifted to the DHQ Hospital

. The firing inside the courtroom has prompted the authorities to beef up security at the District Court and deploy a heavy contingent of police.
