SWABI: A young labourer was shot dead over a petty issue in Kotha village of Topi tehsil here on Wednesday.

A complainant, Aitebar Khan, told the Topi city police that he along with his brother, Ismail Khan, 30, went to the house of one Saqib in their village to finalise a deal to fix tiles in his residence.

He said an argument ensued over the rate, prompting Saqib to take out a pistol and open fire at Ismail, leaving him seriously injured.

The complainant said the injured was rushed to the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital, where he succumbed to injuries.

The police registered an FIR on his complaint and began investigations.

Separately, Arosa Khan, 5, who was critically injured in a road accident on the first day of Eidul Fitr, succumbed to her injuries in the Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar. She hailed from Maneri Bala village. Her father, a Frontier Constabulary personnel, died in the accident.
