An ustadz was shot and seized by gunmen at Sitio Malandi, Patalon last Monday afternoon.

A sketchy report identified the victim as Ustadz Basir Mursalun, a resident of Patalon.

DZT gathered that Mursalun was driving a motorcycle passing Sitio Malandi around 4:50 p.m. when gunmen aboard a black Adventure car appeared and blocked his way.

Mursalun reportedly engaged in an exchange of gunfire with the gunmen but he was hit in the body.

Residents said that when Mursalun fell on the ground, the gunmen took and placed him aboard their Adventure car that sped towards city proper.

At Sinubong,  one of the Adventure’s tires blew prompting the vehicle to stop and the gunmen to transfer Mursakun to another vehicle.

Witnesses told the police that Mursalun was seriously wounded while being carried and transferred by the armed men to the other vehicle.

Mursalun remained missing as of press time.

Police were still trying to determine the identities of the armed men and to locate Mursalun. — Dan Toribio Jr.
