Two Shinwari watchmen of Peero Khel graveyard were killed on Wednesday night. The two killed watchmen were identified as Azeem and Niaz Ameen Sheikhmal Khel Shinwari. They were both killed by unknown extremists while they were patrolling the graveyard particularly the graves of the relatives of MNA Noorul Haq Qadri on Wednesday night in late hours, local sources informed. The extremists had reportedly placed explosive material near the graves of the relatives of MNA to destroy them, which could not be detonated by the time, which were disposed off in the morning by Bomb Disposal Squad (BDS).

The Khasadar Force personnel carried the two dead bodies to hospital to clean them, which were later handed over to their heirs, hospital sources said. It is to be recalled that in the past too the same graves at Peero Khel had been tried to be blown up with explosive material after which the watchmen had been appointed to protect the graveyard.

However, no casualty was reported in the blast in the house.
