MNA Ayesha Gulalai's former personal secretary was gunned down on Sunday in Laki Marwat in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, DawnNews reported.
Noor Zaman was killed when unknown suspects on motorcycles opened fire at him in Laki Marwat's Tajori town, police said.
“The attackers were on motorbikes and fled after the attack,” station house officer at Tajori police station, Altafur Rehman, told DawnNews. He added that at present no further information regarding the motive behind the attack can be provided.
“We have started an investigation. Once thorough investigations are carried out, we will be able to comment further," Rehman said.
A first information report (FIR) was registered at Tajori police station by Zaman's relatives, who nominated four individuals from the Dawar tribe, Rehman said. He added that the police have initiated a search for the men nominated in the FIR in order to arrest them.
On August 8, Zaman had moved the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) and the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ehtesab Commission against the former Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) leader over alleged corruption in development projects.
The petition filed with NAB in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa alleged that Gulalai and her father, Shams-ul-Qayyum, have been involved in embezzlement and corruption in various development schemes.
On August 1, Gulalai had announced her exit from PTI amid a flurry of allegations of harassment against party chairman Imran Khan and other top party members.
