Sikh: Attackers kill Pakistani Sikh in drive-by shooting in Lahore

LAHORE (Reuters) – A Pakistani Sikh was killed by unidentified people in a drive-by shooting in the eastern city of Lahore on Saturday, police said.
The man, identified as Sardar Singh, was shot dead by gunmen on a motorbike in the residential area of ​​Nawab Town in Lahore. He was taking a morning walk accompanied by his bodyguard when the attack happened, police said.
Singh was fatally shot in the head. Officer Assad Abbas said the bodyguard was injured in the attack.
Police declined to explain why Singh had a bodyguard or provide further details. No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
Religious minorities often face violence in Muslim-majority Pakistan, even though the country’s constitution guarantees them equal rights and freedom to practice their religion.
Last month, a Pakistani Sikh businessman and a Christian cleaner were shot dead by gunmen in separate incidents in the northwestern city of Peshawar. A day earlier, a prominent Hindu eye doctor and surgeon was shot dead in the port city of Karachi.
