Unidentified men kill Ahmadi professor in Peshawar: Jamaat’s spokesperson
Unidentified men killed on Monday an Ahmadi professor in Peshawar, a spokesperson for Jamaat Ahmadiyya said.
Professor Naeemuddin Khan Khattak was attacked when he was on his way home after finishing his classes at Peshawar’s Superior College, the spokesperson said on Twitter.
The 56-year-old academic held a PhD in Zoology.
Professor Khattak and his family were "facing threats" for past several months, the spokesperson said in the statement. "Two persons threatening him on the basis of faith have been nominated [in the FIR]," it read.
One of them was a neigbour of Professor Khattak who forced people to "boycott" him and his family, the spokesperson added.
The police confirmed the murder, saying that the professor was attacked by unidentified motorcyclists on Dora Road.
They said they had lodged a case after shifting his body to a hospital for autopsy.
