Kohat: Youth shot dead
KOHAT: The police blocked traffic on the Kohat–Hangu road for the safety of passengers after rival groups exchanged indiscriminate fire following murder of a youth in Muhammadzai here on Saturday.
Khalid Khan, father of the deceased, Tasleem Khan, told police members of local peace committee, Majid Khan and Shah Nawaz, killed his son after exchange of hot words with him. He said the accused had asked them not to water their ‘own’ fields in Zawaki Banda.
The aggrieved party after burying the deceased attacked the houses of the killers with firearms, who also retaliated. A pedestrian and member of Muhammadzai Welfare Tanzeem, Laiq Khan, were injured in the crossfire. The firing was so intense that the police had to intervene.
