A notorious crime lord of Lahore, Balaj Tipu, was shot dead by unknown assailants during a wedding ceremony in Chung area of Lahore on Sunday night, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

Balaj Tipu was the son of Arif Amir, alias Tipu Truckanwala, who was also murdered in 2010 at the Allama Iqbal airport. Balaj's grandfather had also fallen victim to an old feud.

The police said that Balaj was attending a wedding function when a man opened fire at him and two other guests, injuring them critically. Balaj's armed men retaliated and killed the attacker on the spot. The injured were taken to Jinnah Hospital, where Balaj succumbed to his wounds.

The news of Balaj's death sparked grief and anger among his supporters, who gathered at the hospital and mourned his demise. Some women were seen beating their chests and cursing the killers, while others chanted slogans in his favour.

The police have cordoned off the area and launched an investigation into the incident. They are trying to ascertain the motive behind the attack and the identity of the assailant. No arrests have been made so far.

Balaj Tipu was considered one of the most influential and feared figures of Lahore's underworld.
