Peshawar: A man was killed and two others were injured when unidentified persons lobbed a grenade and opened fire at a home in this northwestern Pakistani city on Tuesday.

The incident occurred at Zara Kalli Shah Alam in Peshawar district. The attackers fired indiscriminately with automatic weapons after throwing the grenade, police said.

Muhammad Khadim was killed while two others sustained injuries. They were taken to a nearby hospital.

The motive for the attack could not immediately be ascertained. However, police said old enmity could not be ruled out in the incident.

The victim originally belonged to the restive Mohmand tribal region and had migrated to Peshawar a few months back due to concerns about terrorism in the tribal belt.
