TTP claims responsibility of killing Lieutenant Colonel Tahir Azeem

PESHAWAR: Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed the responsibility for the killing of Lieutenant Colonel Tahir Azeem who was shot to death a day earlier by unknown gunmen in Peshawar’s Hayatabad area.

According to Taliban spokesman Mohammad Khorasani, TTP has killed the army officer on Sunday.

Earlier, two assailants on a motorcycle targeted Col Tahir in Abaseen Market when he was on his way home from a nearby mosque in Hayatabad Phase 3.

Tahir Azeem expired on the spot after sustaining multiple bullet wounds, local police said.

Col Tahir Azeem’s brothers— Waqas and Shakil — were also shot dead in separate attacks in 2004 and 2005. Both Waqas and Shakil, however, had no association with the armed forces.
