Bajaur man’s ear chopped off
KHAR: Unidentified miscreants on Thursday chopped off a man’s ear some 30 kilometres from Bajaur Agency headquarters Khar, while in a separate incident a youth was killed and another person injured when unidentified gunmen opened fire in Khar’s Inayat Killay Bazaar. Bajaur Agency resident Faisal Khan’s ear was chopped off because miscreants suspected him of providing water to government employees in the Nawagai area.
He has been admitted to Khar Hospital for treatment. Political authorities are investigating the incident. Meanwhile, gunmen opened fire in the Inayat Killay Bazaar, killing a youth, Yar Gul, and injuring another local, Syed Rehman. They were rushed to Khar Hospital, where the latter’s condition was said to be stable. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack so far. Traders closed the second-largest bazaar of the agency in protest. Because of the volatile security situation in the bazaar, the political administration had already shifted all banks to Khar Bazaar. Security has been beefed up in the agency and Levies deployment has been reinforced at sensitive places.
