A senior police officer in the Punjab province district of Khanewal said the attack happened when the two officers were parking their vehicle. No one claimed responsibility for the attack on the officers, who were known for arresting Pakistani Taliban and other militants. They were also known for their expertise in investigating and solving complicated cases, including gun and bomb attacks in the country.
