    January, 23, Dera Ismail Khan:
    A Sikh was gunned down by unidentified men in Tangi Bazaar, Charsadda in the evening. Tangi police official Noorullah said Bhagwan Singh, son of Ashar Singh and resident of Dabgari, owned a medicine shop in the bazaar for many years and had no dispute with anyone. Bhagwan was on his way home at around 4pm when two armed men approached and opened fire, killing him on the spot.

    “It has not yet been ascertained whether the assailants were on foot or in a vehicle,” the official said. “We cannot say at the moment if he was gunned down by militants, or if it was because of a personal feud.”

    The body was shifted to DHQ hospital for an autopsy, after which it was taken to his hometown of Peshawar.

    Not just Pakistan Gyani ji! Afghan Sikhs are going through the same thing in Afghanistan. It is a terrible thing to see many Afghan and Pakistani Sikhs flee their own homeland to be safer. Hopefully Sikhi presence remains strong there for both countries.
