A Christian man was killed in a dispute in Lahore

Following a dispute between Muslim and Christian community members over the construction of a wall in a neighbourhood of Lahore's Factory Area, a 25-year-old Christian man was killed and several others were injured.
Pervaiz Maseech died on Monday from injuries acquired during the struggle after being struck in the head with an iron rod.
Several of the injured people are still in serious condition.

According to Dawn, the altercation was not caused by religious sentiments, but rather by a local quarrel. It wasn't the first time the neighbourhood had become violent. A similar fight occurred on Sunday, but Lahore police were unable to respond due to their participation in the HBL Pakistan Super League (PSL).

Nearly 200 people gathered on the street on Monday and began chanting slogans and flinging insults at one another. Pervaiz, who lived on the same block, confronted the gang outdoors. Several members of the group, armed with guns, began firing from the air.

According to the media reports, Pervaiz was surrounded by the throng and hit on the back of his head with an iron rod. The news of the young man's death immediately circulated across the Christian community, and police remained on the scene to quell the murmurings. A suspect has been apprehended, and a murder FIR has been filed against those involved.
