Khyber Pakhtunkhwa police have arrested four people, including an employee of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Public Service Commission (KPPSC) on Tuesday on suspicion of killing a director of the commission, AAJ TV has reported.
This was confirmed by SSP Operations Kashif Aftab Abbasi. Allegedly a KPPSC employee was also involved.
Arshad Khan was KPPSC director of the examination.
The case is still being probed as some suspects have been traced and additionally, mobile data has also been recovered from them.
According to SSP Abbasi Khan was killed as he did not leak the paper to the students.
In a post on X (formerly Twitter) journalist Iftikhar Firdous shared an AAJ TV clip reporting that the student paid Rs400,000 to a target killer to kill the Director Examination.
So students who appeared in an examination paid 400,000 rupees to a target killer to kill the Director Examination, so that they don’t fail. Bizzare! https://t.co/vu2ZwrDa08— Iftikhar Firdous (@IftikharFirdous) September 19, 2023
Arshad Khan was shot on July 24 while he was on his way to Peshawar from Charsadda.
He died on the spot from bullet wounds.
At the time, police was unable to find the reason for the murder while the body was shifted to a hospital for post-mortem examination.
