Anti-Taliban leader killed in Buner suicide attack: Police

BUNER: Five people, including anti-Taliban leader Fateh Khan, were killed and seven were injured in a suicide bomb attack in the Daggar area of Buner on Saturday, police said.

District Police Officer (DPO) Jehanzeb Khan confirmed the killing.

According to the details, the blast occurred near a petrol pump in the Daggar area at 2pm.

“As a result, a local leader of the QWP Saeed Ahmad alias Fateh Khan with his two gunmen were killed on the spot,” the district police chief told The Express Tribune.

He further said that the explosion also claimed the lives of two passersby as well. The injured were rushed to the district headquarters hospital while police rushed to the site and cordoned off the area.

Fateh Khan was a former Awami National Party (ANP) leader and had recently joined the Qaumi Watan Party (QWP).

Members of the peace militia have come under attack in the province on multiple occasions in the recent past.

I don't know why our countey men always tend to deviate the discussion. We try to always present and impose OUR opinion or certain political affiliation. And we always think we are right, even if we find out we are wrong we are still ignorant to accept our mistakes/shortcomings. These comments or this discussion should strictly be on the incident/story, and not on our political view of politicians or on Imran Khan's political stand. Although, I still see him as the most honest and best candidate for pakistan's future. We have triedand seen the others and I think he definety dererves a chance. Anyways, in regards to this incidents, hear it from a Buneri point of view. There has not been any sign of Talibans in Buner for quite a while now, and all the entry and exit points has been strictly controlled by the military. No one from Buner can get in or out without a NIC card so Taliban??? And Khudkash?? Also during the taliban rule in Buner, there were less than a hand full of people that joined Taliban and even they were either too naive to understand the reality or then ignored/uselss (fazool/Bikara) citizens that had no aim in life so it was somewhat an exciting decision for them - considering the power they were given been part of the network. Moreover, there are no supporters of Talibans but i guess... Anyways, this is by itself a big discussion and I think I'm myself going off topic now. Well, my point is; This is more than Taliban related incident, i think it's the BIG BROTHER... If u know what I mean! My condolences to Fateh Khan family...
