Besides the girl’s father, Ajmal’s father Wazir Gul had also been nominated in the FIR.

The Badhabher police said that a 14-year-old Zakia and her alleged paramour, 24-year-old Azharuddin — who hailed from Akka Khel area of Khyber — had been killed near the Sheikhan police post, apparently by relatives of the girl.
