Gunmen ambushed a car carrying a senior government lawyer in a residential area of eastern Pakistan on Friday, killing him, his brother, two children and two guards, police said. Several passers-by were also wounded during the attack on Chaudhry Arif Bhindar, an additional advocate general in the eastern Punjab province. Police said the dead and injured were taken to a hospital. Bhinder, 44, was dropping off his children, 5 and 7, at school with his brother before heading to court when gunmen opened fire on his car, said Imtiaz Habib, an area police chief. "Apparently, Chaudhry Arif Bhindar was targeted by his rivals because he had enmity with a family in Lahore, where the attack happened, but officers were still investigating," he said.
