Two Sikh men shot dead by ‘anti-state elements’ in Peshawar ￼
The murder of two Sikh men in Peshawar’s Bata Tal bazaar of Sarband forced the Sikh community to stage a protest, demanding rights. The two men were shot dead on Sunday early morning when they were riding a motorcycle and owned spice shops in the Bata Tal Bazaar.
The two deceased were identified as Saljeet Singh and Ranjeet Singh, 42 and 38. Subsequently, the Peshawar Capital City Police Officer, Ijaz Khan, via a statement, confirmed that the murder was a targeted killing and aimed at spreading terror. Ijaz Khan is further quoted as, “The attackers chose the border area of Peshawar to carry out their attack on a holiday, and further search is underway.” At the same time, the Peshawar police officers claimed that this is a string of attacks, and they are looking for the alleged attackers.
