TANK: The alleged facilitator of an attack on the monitoring team of the Education Department in tribal sub-division Betani (former FR Lakki Marwat), Gul Nawaz has been shot dead in the tribal area of Tank.

Local sources said the body of Gul Nawaz was found in a deserted place in Mulakhel on Wednesday morning. Unidentified armed men shot dead Gul Nawaz and threw his body in a deserted place. The body has been taken into custody by the local administration.

On 27 March, two officials of the Education Department monitoring team, including a female officer, were killed and four others were injured in a firing incident in sub-division Betani. A day after the incident, the local administration had asked the local elders to hand over two facilitators of the attack, Arjumand Tajbikhel and Gul Nawaz, within two days. In a Jirga headed by Deputy Commissioner Jehangir Azam and Colonel Usman of the Pakistan Army, the tribal elders were warned of strict action if the facilitators were not handed over within two days.

The next day on 29 March, the Jirga members had handed over one of the facilitators, Arjumand, to the administration, while it was revealed that Gul Nawaz was still at large. However, Gul Nawaz could not be handed over to the administration and he was killed under mysterious circumstances in the tribal area of Tank on Wednesday.
