In an unfortunate incident, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Atif Munsif Khan, hailing from Basti Sher Khan, lost his life when a rival group opened fire on his vehicle near Havelian’s Langra village which caused the car’s fuel tank to explode.

Atif was the son of former provincial minister Munsif Khan Jadoon.

He was elected the Havelian tehsil nazim as an independent candidate in the 2022 municipal elections. After winning the election, he joined the Imran Khan-led PTI.


Nine others also died in the attack.

According to Dawn, the District Police Officer (DPO) refuted media reports claiming that the car had been targeted by a “rocket attack”.

Surprisingly, the DPO said that a first information report (FIR) has not yet been registered.

After the news, the PTI leaders extended condolences and demand an immediate inquiry into the matter.
