Dig them out when the foliage die and keep them at a cool dry place and for the next season follow these steps and I hope that will work

1 put them in a refrigerator for couple of months prior to planting
2 plant them by the end of October or start of November
3 or their is another technique put some compost in small cups like Pepsi or disposable plastic cups and put one bulb in each cup and then put them in refrigerator and after one month or so take them out and put them in a pot this way during the refrigeration time they will develop healthy root system but will not sprout and afterwards you can plant them straight to pot as plug plant

because their root system take at least one month or more to develop and they need proper cold weather for that and I hope they will bloom for you at the end of December or start of January and try to plant them where they get morning sun light till early afternoon but not the blazing sun of late afternoon. I hope this will work fingers crossed.

Please show pictures of your other tulips.
For how long have you been growing tulips?
If I were to grow them in Lahore will I have the blooms year after year?
The impression I gathered was that it was only one time show for Lahore.

not sure about Lahore Arif sb because what I have learned from this forum is that Lahore climate is quite different from RWP/ISL because all plants start blooming in Lahore first and RWP/ISL after but what I can advise you according to my limited knowledge that plant them in the coldest time of the year and refrigerate them before you plant them hope this will help. and at the moment I don’t have much Tulips with me and I’m not growing them for long but what I have learned and observed is what I have explained in my tips I hope they will work and hope they can be kept for more than a year.
