According to details, the incident took place near Kohi Goth Nadi when four unidentified assailants opened fire on Rangers personnel and escaped.
The injured personnel were shifted to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) while the law enforcement agencies reached the spot and cordoned off the area.
