Trader kidnapped

By Our Correspondent

LAKKI MARWAT, May 21: Five armed men kidnapped a local trader from his shop on the Dera-Bannu Road on Monday. Eyewitnesses said that Sahibzada Ayub Ahmad, said to be the spiritual leader of local Ahmadis, was dragged from his shop in the Shafi Market in Serai Naurang town. They said that the intruders had smashed the shop’s glass entrance.

Local Taliban supporters had threatened Sahibzada Ayub and other Ahmadis living in the Nar Sahibzada Khost area near the town a couple of weeks ago either to ‘embrace Islam’ or leave the area, an official said.
