Unidentified assailants shot dead a hakim (physician) belonging to the Sikh community on Charsadda road in Peshawar on Thursday.
According to the police, the attackers barged into the clinic of Satnam Singh and shot at him four times.
He was rushed to the Lady Reading Hospital in an injured condition where he later succumbed to his injuries.
The police further stated that the physician had arrived in Peshawar from Hassan Abdaal a day earlier. Meanwhile, the Capital City Police Officer Peshawar said that the case was being investigated.
In July, an Assistant Director of Peshawar Development Authority, Junaid Akbar, was gunned down by unknown miscreants in the district.
According to the brother of the deceased, he was fired upon as soon as he left home to buy something.
