PESHAWAR, July 13: A man nominated in a murder case was shot dead by his opponent inside Peshawar judicial complex where he had come for a pre-arrest bail on Friday.

Later, 14 policemen, including two sub-inspectors, responsible for security of the complex were arrested on the orders of Peshawar High Court Chief Justice Dost Mohammad Khan when he took notice of the incident. The chief justice also directed the concerned police to produce report as to how the accused managed to take weapon to the court premises despite security arrangements.

An official of East Cantonment police said that one Tufail of Badbher – nominated in a double murder case registered with Badbher police station – had come to the court of additional sessions judge Ahmed Sultan Tareen inside the judicial complex for pre-arrest bail. He said that a teenager Sabz Ali, son of Mirza Ali, of the same village appeared and opened fire on Mr Tufail, who soon died on way to nearby Lady Reading Hospital.

The official said that Mr Tufail was facing charges of killing parents of Sabz Ali a few weeks ago in a grenade attack on their residence.

Another source said that Sabz Ali had been arrested and during initial interrogation he admitted that a policeman of Badbher police station, who is his relative, had cooperated in provision of pistol to him inside the judicial complex. The police, he said, were trying to arrest the policeman.
