According to police, unknown armed men opened fire at Union Council Mohmand Khel’s officer Ishaq Khan and his colleague Nazir Khan who were going back home on a bike after attending an observer meeting regarding the start of anti-polio drive in the district.

The incident took place at Dheri stop and both victims died on the spot.
