    :tsk::tsk: This is what I hate about India Pakistan matches


    An alleged bookmaker was shot dead by unidentified gunmen here after India defeated Pakistan in an Asia Cup cricket match in Bangladesh, police said on Monday.

    Muhammad Shaukat alias Lambha, 55, was killed in his house near Sandah Road in Lahore shortly after the India-Pakistan match on Sunday, they said.

    Shaukat's relatives, who lived on the ground floor of the same house, alerted police after hearing gunshots.

    Police claimed that they had found a book containing names, telephone numbers and cash, which suggested that Shaukat was a bookie.

    It could not immediately be ascertained if the killing was in any way linked to Sunday's match.

    At least six empty shells were found beside the body, which was sent for an autopsy, police said.

    Most likely robbery I think since the victim probably had a large amount of cash from bets or for payouts.

    Ad Hoc mugging doesn't happen in South Asia Wald.If its a hit that means it is orchestrated and there might be a lot at stake.

    A bookie always is taking bets or making payments, so always has cash. But even the Mafia doesn't make a hit on somebody at home with his family.

    This is not USA where even criminals have some sort of 'code of conduct'. This is pakistan where "code of conduct" doesn't exist either in the civil world or criminal world.
