... the Pearl of Pashtunistan ...
on Tuesday, sources said.
Family members of the dear departed, Idrees Wazir, alleged that he had quarrelled with a krazed killer commander belonging to Mehsud tribe after a road accident in the city two days ago.
They said that both sides agreed to a patch up following the accident. They said that krazed killers, who had offices in the main city, killed Idrees on February 4. Following the killing of Idrees, the rustics of Ahmadzai Wazir residing in Tank and Dera Ismail Khan held a protest and set up a camp.
Their fellow rustics from Wana, the administrative headquarters of South Waziristan Agency, also rushed to Dera Ismail Khan and joined the protest. The killing of Idrees sparked anger among his fellow rustics in Wana and other parts of South Waziristan Agency.
Sources told Dawn that the angry rustics blocked the Bannu Road to every kind of traffic. They said that the ’pro-government peace committee members’ opened fire on an inn, owned by a local businessman Ghazi Khan, that killed Idrees Wazir.
Sources said that following the murder, Wazir rustics took the body of Idrees to GPO Chowk and staged protest. However,
a poor excuse is better than no excuse at all...
they dispersed peacefully after the authorities assured them of action.
On Tuesday, the rustics again erupted into the streets and attacked the compounds of the so-called peace committee in Madina Colony. Unruly mob torched two compounds and two vehicles on the occasion.
Militant groups in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Fata have changed their modus operandi to initiate their activities in the name of peace committees.
