Gunmen Shot Dead Shia Trader in Peshawar - Pakistan

Gunmen Shot Dead Shia Trader in Peshawar - Pakistan

The police identified the deceased as Siraj Hussain of Imamia Colony in Gulbahar area and the injured person as Waheed Murad of Sahab Baba area.

An official of the Faqirabad police station said two men riding a motorcycle opened fire at the Shia trader when he was busy shopping along with friends.

He said the trader was shifted to the Lady Reading Hospital, where he succumbed to critical injuries.

"Friends of the deceased returned fire but attackers fled. However, we don't know if any of them was injured. We are searching for attackers," the official said.

Later, members of Shia community led by Muzaffar Ali Akhunzada and Irshad Hussain Bangash blocked the GT Road against the killing.

Shouting slogans against the police over the growing violence against them in the city, they warned they would agitate if killers were not arrested.

Meanwhile, Irshad Hussain Bangash, a spokesman for Masjlis-i-Wahdat Muslimeen, said that the provincial government had promised crackdown on violence against members of Shia community, but the promise turned out to be false.

"Currently, we have focused our attention on Chehlum of Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and cannot launch a protest movement. However, we will not remain silent in future," he said.

Bangash urged the government to ensure the immediate end to targeted killings, especially that of Shias.
