KOHAT: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police on Tuesday issued a red warrant for Mujahid Afridi who fled to Saudi Arabia after killing a medical college student.

Asma Rani, a third-year MBBS student from Kohat, was shot to death in her hometown on Saturday.

According to the deceased’s family, Mujahid Afridi, a nephew of PTI district president, killed Asma Rani after she turned down his marriage proposal.
