Mystery surrounds lawyer’s murder

PESHAWAR – Reports about a senior lawyer’s murder by his captors became a mystery as the dead body found in Tirah Valley of Khyber Agency was not of Zain Khan Khalil Advocate.
According to the family sources, a man who was mediating between the kidnappers and the son of Zain Khan made a call and asked them to be prepared for funeral as the captors had killed Zain Khan.
Official teams were sent to the site to bring the body but the tribal levies, after getting the body, told the high ups that it was not of the lawyer.
The family was happy over this report but still in confusion as they were not sure whether Zain Khan was alive or not while the legal fraternity had given a strike call today (Wednesday) to condemn the incident. Peshawar High Court (PHC) Bar Association’s senior members also visited the house of the lawyer when the political administration informed the family that the dead body was not of the lawyer.
PHCBA Secretary Ameen-ur-Rehman told Pakistan Today that they had also received the same information which had further complicated the issue.
He added that the lawyers were happy that the dead body was not of Zain Khan but the government should tell us where was he? Kidnapped lawyer’s family had already registered first information report (FIR) in Peshtakhara Police Station some 4 months ago.
