ICRC worker shot dead in Tank
TANK: Two unidentified persons shot dead a lady health visitor (LHV) in the limits of Gomal police station late on Tuesday night. The deceased LHV was working with International Committee of the Red Cross at Kot Hakeem basic health unit.
Her brother told police that she was performing duty at the health unit when two persons, one of them wearing a veil, knocked at the door of the hospital at 12 midnight. The watchman opened the door and the assailants tried to whisk away his sister, he added.
“They shot dead my sister on resistance,” he said. Police registered FIR against unidentified assailants. It merits a mention here that more than a dozen NGOs have been working in Tank since the last year devastating flood hit the region.
