SWABI: Three policemen were injured in a grenade attack on their van while patrolling the area on Swabi-Mardan road near Al-Falah link road on Tuesday.

All injured were shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital Swabi.

The unknown attackers fled from the scene after the attack taking advantage of the low visibility conditions in the area.

In an unrelated incident the slaughtered body of a Sikh man was found in Chora area of Jamrud Tehsil in Khyber tribal region. The killers left a chit on the body claiming that the victim was killed due to his involvement in spying activities for the banned religious outfit, Lashkar-i-Islam.

The deceased was a resident of Bara and a practitioner of herbal medicine, who was kidnapped a few days earlier from Tirah valley in Khyber tribal region's Bara Tehsil.

Peshawar, the capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, situated between Khyber and Orakzai tribal region is home to the largest Sikh population in the country.
