ANP’s Peshawar city president Sartaj Khan has been shot dead in the Gulbahar area of Peshawar.
According to the police, his assailants were on motorcycles.
His body was taken to Lady Reading Hospital after which it was handed over to his family.
Khan is from Charsadda and was elected as the ANP’s Peshawar city president.
Peshawar Operations SSP Zahoor Babar Afridi said it seems like this is a case of targeted killing. He said Khan was sitting in the car at the time of the attack and his assailants did not steal his phone or wallet.
ANP workers in Peshawar are protesting against Khan’s murder. They have blocked Gulbahar Road by burning tyres.
Expressing his condolences over Khan’s murder, KP Chief Minister Mahmood Khan said that those involved in the ANP leader’s murder will be brought to justice.
