BANNU: A cop who was performing duty during the ongoing anti-polio drive was martyred here on Wednesday, sources said.

The sources said that unidentified gunmen opened fire on the cop identified as Akhar Zaman, who was escorting a polio team. He sustained injuries in the firing and was rushed to the Kahlifa Gul Nawaz Hospital in Bannu, where he succumbed to his injuries.

It may be mentioned that a brother of the martyred cop, who was serving in the FC, was also martyred in an attack some time back.
