When the car left the city of Lahore, CTD followed them asked them to pull over at the toll plaza. There Khalil did not cooperate with the police and opened fire on CTD.
In return, they also opened fired which resulted in them being killed. Police reported that they found weapons from their car and only opened the firing when they resisted and fired at them first.
When the other two terrorists who were hiding the Zeeshan’s house heard the news, they fled, but later they were caught in Gujranwala. Police found that they were wearing the suicidal jackets and they killed themselves by blasting their car.

Those poor dismissed people have since been identified, and they are as Mohammad Khalil, his wife Nabeela, their 13-year-old daughter Areeba and their neighbor Zeeshan. They were traveling in their Suzuki Alto car with three more children, two daughters, and 1 son.
