Ex-intelligence operative among four shot dead in KP


Unidentified gunmen on motorcycles shot dead four people, including two policemen and a former intelligence official, in separate violence incidents in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, police said on Wednesday.

The policemen were gunned down in the town of Dera Ismail Khan, senior police official Abdul Ghafoor Afridi said.

Attackers on a motorcycle shot dead a retired intelligence official in Peshawar, said senior police official Kashif Zulfiqar.

Abdul Latif retired from the intelligence service 18 months ago. He was targeted near his house late Tuesday as he was going to a mosque for Isha prayers.
