KARAK/LAKKI MARWAT: The security forces in Frontier Region (FR) Lakki Marwat foiled a bid to abduct brother of a member provincial assembly (MPA) and killed an alleged ringleader of a gang of kidnappers on Wednesday night, sources said.
The police and family sources said that Shah Jehan Khattak, brother of JUI-F MPA Malik Qasim Khan Khattak and a banker in Karak, was on way home in his car when three persons including a woman asked for a lift in Babalkhel area. After covering some distance, the accused asked him to drive the vehicle towards FR Lakki Marwat, the sources said.
Acting on a tip-off, the FR Lakki political administration directed the Khassadars at Gazgoba checkpost to intercept the car but the occupants opened fire on them. The kidnappers’ ringleader, Jamil, was killed in exchange of fire. However, his accomplices managed to flee leaving the kidnapped bank official.
