PESHAWAR: Bullet-riddled bodies of Aman Lashkar (peace militia) commander and three of his associates were dumped in Bazid Khel area of Peshawar on Wednesday, police said.
The bodies of Fahimuddin, 50, chief of a 1,500-strong vigilante force in Bazid Khel on the outskirts of Peshawar, and three of his associates were found in a Toyota Land Cruiser on the city's ring road.
"We found the bodies around 7:00 am (0200 GMT). Four of them had been shot at close range," senior police official Asif Iqbal told.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. According to police, relatives had not heard from Din since Tuesday when he went to Islamabad for work.
Police said Fahimuddin survived at least three suicide bombings and several roadside bomb attacks blamed on the Taliban and warlord Mangal Bagh who leads the Lashkar-e-Islam militia in the adjoining Khyber tribal district.
On June 12, two of his bodyguards were killed in a suicide attack that targeted his vehicle. Din survived because he had not been in the car.
