Peshawar, May 12 (ANI): The Peshawar police has killed an alleged militant wanted over terror attacks, including last year’s murder of an official with the Iranian consulate, officials said.

Sources told Daily Times that Amanullah, a resident of Badhber village, was travelling in a car in the Sheikhabad area when police flagged him down but he made a run for it.

Amanullah was asked to surrender for a complete search but he refused to do so, which led to an exchange of fire.

The militant was killed on the spot while two policemen - identified as Tariq and Javed - were wounded during the gun-battle.

However, local police chief Liaquat Ali told a foreign news agency that police, acting on a tip-off, conducted a raid on a house in the provincial metropolis where Amanullah had been hiding.

A gun battle broke out and Amanullah was killed, he said, adding that two police officials were wounded in the clash, which lasted for about half an hour. (ANI)
