Newspaper agency owner shot dead in Dara Adamkhel

DARA ADAMKHEL: Rosham Khan (50), a social worker and the owner of a newspaper agency, was killed here on Friday by unidentified gunmen at his shop. Witnesses said two masked men stopped their bike in front of Khan’s newspaper agency in Aslam Market at around 8am, and one of them — dressed in a tribal police uniform — entered the shop and started firing at Khan, while the other man stayed outside.

Khan, who had been shot several times in the head and chest, was rushed to hospital where doctors pronounced him dead. The doctor on duty told Daily Times that Khan had sustained more than 20 bullet wounds. He said that Khan’s body had been handed over to his relatives. Although the cause of the killing was not immediately known, locals believe the incident could have been the result of an old rivalry. “He was a resident of Sharaki, but lived in Sharekara for most of life, and recently shifted to Dara Adamkhel along with his family,” said a resident of the area.
