Hours after the dead-body of missing tribal
elder and commander of tribal peace force was found in northern Pakistani city
of Peshawar, the peace force refused to cooperate with the government till his
murderers are arrested.
The bullet-riddled bodies of Fahimud Din, the 50-year old chief of
1500-militia force in Bazedkhel town, located on the outskirts of Peshawar,
and his three associates were found Wednesday morning in a Toyota Land Cruiser
on the city s ring road.
They had been missing for last two days. It appears they had been kidnapped
and dumped near Peshawar after being killed, said a local senior police
officer Asif Iqbal while talking to newsmen. He said that they had been shot
at close range.
A journalist from Peshawar, Ismail Hussain Khan, told KUNA by telephone
that after the killing of their chief and his three associates, the peace
militia force has refused to cooperate with the government till his murderers
are arrested. Ismail said that Basedkhel peace militia has been playing a
significant role in maintaining peace in the outskirts of Peshawar.
It is important to mention here that Din had earlier survived at least
three suicide and bomb attacks by Taliban. However, no group has so far
claimed responsibility for his killing.
