Miranshah, Apr 30 (ANI): A former Pakistani intelligence official was killed in Karam Kot area of Mir Ali in Waziristan.

Former intelligence officer Squadron Leader Khalid Khwaja's bullet riddled was found today with a pamphlet saying Asian Tigers killed Khwaja.

The self-styled militant organisation, Asian Tigers, which has been holding hostage two former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) officers and a journalist, came up with new demands on April 28, for the release of the kidnapped men.

It had approached former Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz parliamentarian from Kohat, Javed Ibrahim Paracha, and sought his role in negotiations between the government and their group for the release of the two retired military officers, The News reports.

The three men had gone to the volatile North Waziristan tribal region on March 26 to work on a documentary about Taliban.

The purported militant group released video statements of the two former intelligence officers, Ameer Sultan alias Colonel Imam and Squadron Leader Khalid Khwaja and journalist, Asad Qureshi. (ANI)
