Eight people died after separate firing incidents in the Khurram District of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region of Pakistan. The killings happened over the course of the week. The deaths of the eight individuals led to a protest by the members of the Turi Bangash tribe. The tribesmen staged the protest in the Parachinar area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s Kurram district. They stated that if the eight deceased people do not get justice, they will start a protest movement.
Accordingly, the tribe demanded that the law authorities of the country must punish the culprits for the murders they had committed. As a part of the project, the tribe members marched on foot to the Parachinar Press Club. The eight deceased individuals included five teachers.
The victims died from separate firing incidents at the Parachinar on Thursday, May 4. The victims were members of the Turi Bangash tribe. The authorities claim that the incident took place due to a land dispute. However, tribal leaders Syed Muhammad and Syed Akhlaq Hussain claim that their tribe had no disputes.
The leaders addressed the protestors and urged them to continue to demand justice for the killings. The people also asked the government of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province to lodge a complaint against the people who were present in the school at the time of the incident. They claimed that all the culprits must get the punishments that they deserve.
The members of the tribe also took the opportunity to criticize the education department of the province. Talking about the eight deaths that happened in the previous week, the members of the tribe claimed that the members of the department did not attend the funerals of the five teachers who died in the incident.
Foremost, the people are demanding the arrest of the headmaster, police constable and class four employees. The tribe claimed that these staff members were present in the school on the day of the incident. Following this, the people demanded that the authorities carry out thorough investigation.
