Police on Thursday arrested two suspects in connection with the murder of two transgender persons in Gujranwala

Police said the accused had gunned down two transgender persons, Shahzad alias Sanam and Zain alias Zaini, in Gujranwala’s Maddo Khalil neighbourhood two days ago. Police say both suspects are students and they were identified through a CCTV footage. Police say the suspects are residents of a locality on the outskirts of Gujranwala and they have made shocking revelations about their act. 

According to the police, one of the students told the investigators that the deceased transgender persons called him to their place and raped him. He said the transgender persons made a video of his rape and then started blackmailing him after the incident. 

Fed up with their blackmailing, he said, he decided to kill them. Police said both suspected would be produced before the media once weapons/tools used in the double murder are recovered from them.
