Bailiff shot dead in Nowshera over arrest
NOWSHERA: A man on Tuesday killed a bailiff after his brother’s arrest in Suriakhel area of Nowshera. A local official said civil judge of the family court Irum Nosheen had ordered bailiffs Liaquat Ali Paracha and Sabghatullah to arrest Yousaf, a resident of Suriakhe, who was wanted in a divorce and dowry case. When the bailiffs reached Suriakhel and arrested Yousaf, his brother, Aumeraz, opened fire on them, killing Mr Liaquat on the spot. Mr Sabghatullah remained unhurt, however.
He got a case registered with Akora Khattak police against the fleeing assailant and his father.
The staff and lawyers of the district courts later announced a three-day mourning against the bailiff’s killing. Also in the day, bailiffs had a meeting. They demanded that the accused be tried under the Anti–Terrorism Act.
