Woman working for NGO shot dead

LANDI KOTAL: A woman worker of a non-governmental organisation was gunned down in Jamrud tehsil of Khyber Agency on Wednesday.

According to her family, three men who were hiding in bushes opened fire on 26-year-old Fareeda when she came out of her home in Ghundi in the morning to go to her office in Hayatabad area of Peshawar.

The assailants escaped on a motorcycle when members of the family rushed to the place after hearing gunshots. “Fareeda was the only bread-earner for her parents, three brothers and a widowed sister,” her relatives said.

She was human resource manager in the NGO working for tribal women.

She had received threats from a militant group a few weeks ago. Local officials said they had arrested three local people suspected of having links with banned groups.

Human rights activist Zarteef Afridi was killed in a similar attack on Dec 8 last year in the same area and the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for the murder.

Local officials said the family of Fareeda had not informed them about the threats given by militants.
