The incident took place in a Christian colony in Kalore Kot, a small town in Bhaker distinct late Thursday night.

Bilal and Kalsoom had recently converted to Islam and got married, by choice, two months ago, the IO said.

On Thursday, they were at Bilal’s house when Imran, along with his brother Zahid and father Irshad, barged in and exchanged harsh words with the couple. He then, shot at the couple, killing them instantly.

The three accused ran away from the scene, while shooting in the air, the contents of the First Information Report (FIR) stated.
