3 PTI activists gunned down at Abbotabad


Abbotabad: Three Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf activists who are popularly known as PTI activists were gunned down at Abbottabad along with two others who were injured in yet another incident of poll-related violence in Khyber Pakhunkhwa Province. The three were in a restaurant at Fawara Chowk when supporters of a PML-N candidate, who had lost the election, shot them down, reports the Dawn.

The latest killings brought the death toll from poll-related violence in the province to 21. Angry protests were held by the victims’ relatives, who blocked Karakorum Highway and demanded immediate arrest of the assailants. They dispersed only after district police chief Sher Akbar and DSP Aziz Afridi assured them that those responsible would be caught at the earliest.
