A 15-year-old instantly shot to stardom when he not only thwarted the kidnap attempt by armed men but also killed two of them in North Waziristan tribal district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P).

Local residents told The Express Tribune that Sajid was on his way home on his motorcycle when three armed men stopped him and tried to kidnap him after accusing him of spying.

The young boy snatched AK-47 from one of the men and shot two of them dead. The third man managed to escape.

“The incident happened in front of dozens of people but no one tried to help the boy. He was severally beaten by the three men but the child showed courage and snatched rifle from one of the militants,” said a local resident.

It may be recalled that Dawar and Wazir tribes have decided to show a united front against the increasing number of target killing incidents in the district after which locals were constantly receiving threats.

The parents of Sajid demanded of the government to provide protection to the family.
