Eleven people have been nabbed for the killing of three Hindu doctors, who were brothers, in Pakistan's Sindh province, interior minister Rehman Malik said.

Ajeet Kumar, Naresh Kumar and Ashok Kumar were gunned down in Shikarpur district Nov 7.

Malik Tuesday told the National Assembly that the culprits involved in the killing would be arrested soon. He said the 11 accused had already been apprehended, reported Associated Press of Pakistan.

According to the minister, the murder of the Hindu doctors was not target killing but the result of personal enmity between two rival groups.
