Five policemen fired dozens of times into a parked car at point-blank range in Pakistan, killing four people including a 12-year-old girl and her parents.
The officers now face murder charges after the incident in the eastern city of Sahiwal last month, during which a family friend was also killed.
Officers then reached inside the car, around the bodies of Mohammad and Nabeela Khalil, their daughter Areeba and their friend Zeeshan, to pull out three surviving children.
The children, all under the age of 10, were found abandoned at a petrol station some distance away, the BBC reported.
Footage of the killings taken in broad daylight by shocked witnesses went viral in Pakistan - sending Prime Minister Imran Khan scrambling to quell anger over a police culture of impunity that is now being threatened by social media.
