In a recent incident in the Mir Ali Bazaar area of North Waziristan, six individuals, all originally from Punjab, were killed in a shooting by unidentified assailants.
According to local police reports, the deceased were barbershop owners in the Mir Ali Bazaar. They were reportedly abducted in the early hours of Tuesday, with their bodies later found near the Bazaar area.
In a related development, Tehreek-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has issued a statement condemning the killing of the six individuals. The TTP categorically denied any involvement in the incident, suggesting instead that such acts might be orchestrated by Pakistani intelligence agencies to discredit the TTP.
