Police Saturday claimed to have killed three dacoits in a shootout near Dinga area of Gujrat town in Punjab province.

The local lawmen said on a tip-off, a special squad went after the ‘suspected criminals’ who started firing as soon as they watched the police. The lawmen repulsed the attack killing three of six suspects.

Sources in the police said another three cronies are on the run and a hunt for those is on.
