A Pakistani national was killed by unidentified gunmen who pretended to be customers at his resort in Barangay Payumo, Dinalupihan, Bataan.
The victim was identified as Imran Akhtar, 44, a businessman and owner of Aryan Resort where the crime took place.
According to Dinalupihan Municipal Police Station Chief of Police Lt.Col. Joel Aparejado, the incident happened around 3:25 p.m. on Tuesday.
