CHITRAL, Sept 3: A young man was shot dead and another injured in the village of Zait in upper Chitral early Wednesday.
Reports said the families of the deceased and the attacker had an old enmity. In 2010, a cousin of Khalilur Rehman was killed allegedly by the family of Sharifullah over a dispute of irrigation water and last year the accused persons were acquitted by the local court.
The family of Khalil had warned his rivals not to use a road passing in front of his house. On Wednesday morning, when Sharifullah and Sadiq were passing by the house of Khalil, they were shot at. As a result, Sharifullah died on the spot while Sadiq was injured.
The injured was taken to the District Headquarters Hospital Chitral from where he has been shifted to Peshawar.
