There was no casualty, he said.

While Suhail was arrested on the same day, Gazi was held on Saturday, police said.

According to police, Suhail had recently gone to Tasleem’s shop for repairing his bike. Tasleem, however, asked Suhail to wait as he was busy with some other work. Later, Suhail along with Gazi fired at Tasleem.
