Two Sikh businessmen killed in broad daylight in Pakistan
Two Sikh businessmen were shot dead on Sunday by unidentified gunmen in Pakistan's northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, the latest targeted killing of the minority community members in the restive province bordering Afghanistan.
Saljeet Singh, 42, and Ranjeet Singh, 38, died on the spot after being attacked by two bike-borne assailants in the morning, according to the police.
No group has so far claimed responsibility for the killing.
Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan condemned the attack and directed the police to take immediate steps to arrest the culprits.
He said that the incident was a conspiracy to disrupt the inter-faith harmony in the province.
The Chief Minister said that justice will be provided to the families of the deceased.
In September last year, a well-known Sikh 'Hakeem' (Unani medicine practitioner) was shot dead by unidentified gunmen inside his clinic in Peshawar.
Similarly, news channel anchor Ravinder Singh was killed in 2020 in the city.
