LANDI KOTAL: A pro-government armed group of the Zakhakhel tribe behe­aded three men from a rival group for allegedly planting a bomb outside a mosque in Bazaar Zakh­akhel a couple of months ago.

Sources close to Tauheedul Islam (TI), the so-called Zakhakhel peace committee, said they had taken the men `hostage’ before the month of Ramazan and found them responsible for planting an explosive device outside a mosque frequented by the Tauheedul Islam’s leaders. The device was defused by the Tauheedul Islam’s activists, they added.

The sources said the hostages were kept in a private jail and investigated by the TI’s volunteers. They were beheaded on Monday after they repor­tedly confessed to their inv­o­lv­ement in planting the bomb.

The deceased were identified as Mamoor Khan, Moh­a­m­mad Najeeb and Hamid, residents of the Khasrogai village in Bazaar Zakhakhel.

Their affiliation could not be immediately ascertained but the Tauheedul Islam has been fighting against the banned Lashkar-e-Islam militant group for the past four years.
