GHALANAI, Dec 1: The body of a member of local peace committee was found in Shagai area of Haleemzai tehsil of Mohmand Agency on Tuesday.

Officials said that the victim, Raad Gul, was kidnapped by unidentified persons outside his house last night. His body was dumped in a playground in Shagai, they added.

Raad Gul was an active member of Haleemzai Peace Committee. The officials of political administration shifted the body to agency headquarters hospital in Ghalanai and later handed it over to his family. They said that the victim was slaughtered.

Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan claimed responsibility of the killing of the volunteer. He told local journalists by telephone that all those people who were supporting the peace committees and the government, would be targeted.

The political authorities brought sniffer dogs to trace the killers of the peace volunteer. The dogs entered the house of a tribesman, whose sons are already in the custody of security forces for their alleged involvement in a blast at Chanda about three months ago.—Correspondent
