Pakistan: On Saturday Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Noor Wali Mehsud group released a statement claiming the killing of a police constable who was kidnapped by TTP from Peshawar city of KP province.

The TTP statement identified the policeman as Fazal Mohammad and went on to threaten Pakistani policemen and other security personnel to quit their jobs or get ready for attacks.

TTP statement was accompanied by documents and ID card of the policeman, which have been blurred due to privacy concerns of the family of the deceased. The TTP statement didn’t mention when he was kidnapped and when he was murdered. It simply said that he was kidnapped “some time ago” and has been killed after interrogation.

In a separate incident, ITCT Newsdesk learned on Saturday that a senior police officer from Peshawar, identified as Tahir Khan, has gone missing from the Pakistani capital of Islamabad. The missing cop hails from North Waziristan and has been involved in community work in his native region.
