PESHAWAR, Nov 27: Police on Tuesday seized the decomposed body of a young man from a dried-up nullah near Ahmadkhel village on the outskirts of the provincial capital.
An official of Badbher Police Station said the body riddled with bullets was seized after a villager informed police about it.
He said the deceased had yet to be identified.
“The body’s condition shows that it has been thrown in the nullah many days ago. Since the nullah is away from the population, no one spotted the body,” he said.
The official said many local residents saw the body but didn’t recognise the deceased and therefore, police buried it after autopsy.
FIVE INJURED IN ACCIDENT: A police vehicle and a passenger van on Tuesday collided on Ring Road head-on injuring three policemen, an undertrial and the van’s driver.
An official of Bana Manri Police Station said police were shifting some undertrials from Karak district to Peshawar when the accident occurred.
