Media personnel were accompanying the pair who were being transported by the police to the hospital for a medical examination when the shooting incident was recorded on video.
Following the shocking killing, the bodies of Ahmad and Ashraf, which had multiple bullet wounds, were removed from the location as the area became tense. Despite it being part of the remand protocol for a regular medical check-up, only a small number of police officers had escorted the two brothers to the hospital.
