Islamabad, Aug. 8 (ANI): An underage Pakistani tailor shot dead his client following a heated argument over the tailor's failure to deliver the latter's order in time.
According to The Express Tribune, the victim, Shah Nawaz, had placed an order with tailor Zeeshan, 16, for a pair of shalwar kameez ahead of Eid.
Zeeshan failed to complete the order by the promised date and asked Nawaz to come back in three days. However, after three days, Nawaz was again given another excuse for his attire not being ready. Nawaz lost his patience and started verbally abusing Zeeshan.
The tailor lost his temper and pulled out a gun, and fired a single shot, killing Nawaz on the spot.
According to eyewitnesses, the tailor kept asking for more time to complete the order, but Nawaz kept scolding him and used foul language.
According to the police, the pistol used to kill Nawaz was not licensed. Zeeshan escaped from the scene taking along the gun. He has been absconding since then.
The police, as well as Zeeshan's family were not sure where the boy had obtained the gun.
A murder case has been registered against the minor. (ANI)
