Speaking on the occasion, ANP leader Asghar Khan Achakzai said, “In the last ten years, I have received three funerals which have left me with a broken back. Leaders and workers have not lost their morale but it has risen further”.
He added that, “From the abduction of Asad Khan Achakzai to the discovery of his body, we have gone through great pain and suffering. It is strange that his mobile phone was found in a good condition. The entire city can testify that he was a harmless person.”
