2012 killings probers visit Kohistan village

MANSEHRA: Members of an inquiry commission on Saturday met family members of the four women allegedly killed in a Kohistan village after a video showing them sing and dance at a wedding surfaced in 2012.

The visitors led by district and sessions judge of Kohistan Shoaib Khan also spoke to the residents of Khotakot village in Pales tehsil.

The commission formed by the Supreme Court consists of district police officer Kohistan Abdul Aziz Afridi, woman police officer Shahzadi Naushad Begum and National Database and Registration Authority and health department officials.

Its members left Dasu at around 9am for Khotakot village under tight security provided by the police and recorded statements of the family members of the women in question as well as local residents. The police cordoned off the area to avert any mishap. The commission members didn’t return to Dasu until night.

The Supreme Court had tasked the commission with looking into the 2012 incident at the request of Mohammad Fazal Kohistani, whose three brothers were killed by the families of women seen in the video.
