CHITRAL: An unknown assailant shot dead a college student at Sehri in Morder village of Upper Chitral district here on Monday.

Sub-divisional police officer Mulkhow Abdul Muzafar Shah told Dawn that as per the statement given by Haider Ali before his death, he and his elder brother, Noor Islam, were sleeping in their room when someone called for his brother from outside.

As my elder brother was sleeping, I opened the door and saw a stranger clad in white clothes and black coat standing at the door, the victim said, adding the man fired at him with a rifle.

The student died while being shifted to hospital, the police officer said, adding a case had been registered against the unknown assailant in Mulkhow police station on the complaint of the deceased’s mother.
