Addressing a press conference, brother of killed Syed Jan Afridi, Orangzeb Afridi narrated that on 18 November, tractor diver Sher Muhammad, Syed Jan Afridi, Ata-ur-Rehman, Adam Khan and others were traveling from Ghanrezi village to main Bara when security forces opened fire on them and a bullet hit Syed Jan in the head. “After Sher Muhammad was shot and his brother Yar Wali was informed. They managed to reach the Hayatabad Medical Complex but Sher succumbed to his injuries.” “When the group returned with Sher Muhammad’s corpse, security forces opened fire again and arrested the rest,” said Orangzeb.
“On Nov 19, Sher’s dead body was returned to his heirs but the arrested men were not released,” he said, “On the Nov 20, their dead bodies turned up in Qamarabad village. The dead included Islamia Public School Principal Syed Jan Afridi and Bsc student Ata-ur-Rahman while Sher’s brother Yar Wali and Adam Khan are still in the custody of security forces.” “Our relatives were innocent and had no association with any banned organisation, but they were targeted by security forces.
