Batkhela: Girl’s alleged killers arrested
BATKHELA: Four alleged killers of a girl student were arrested here on Thursday, a senior official said.
Deputy Commissioner of Malakand Agency Ali Abbas Khan told reporters that the personnel of the Malakand Levies raided several places and arrested the accused Mohsin, Israful Haq, Muhammad Gul and Nizamul Haq.
He said that the accused tried to kidnap the student, Laiba Daud, when she was coming home from the Government Girls High School, Haryankot village, last week. He said that they shot her dead when she put resistance.
“Actually her parents had refused to accept the marriage proposal sent for her by the accused,” he maintained. The residents, relatives, teachers, students and political activists of the Dargai tehsil had staged protest and blocked the road a day earlier to demand arrest of the killers.
