An Afghan driver was shot dead by Pakistani police in Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Friday when he failed to pay 20 rupees (less than 10afs) in bribe, a transport union official said.

A policeman killed Tawab Gul, an Afghan refugee, in the Pishtakhara locality of Peshawar, said Ayaz Khan, a member of the city transport union. The victim lived in Nothia area, he added.

The policeman asked for Rs100 in bribe, but the driver offered him Rs80, something that annoyed the policeman, who pumped five bullets into the driver.

“Gul was rushed to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries,” said Sirajuddin, a witness. The transport union and the victim’s relatives blocked the ring road for a while as a mark of protest.

The driver had abused the policeman, claimed Muhammad Saeed, an official tasked with investigating the murder. The killer is under interrogation, Saeed added.
