The militants kidnapped the group of security persons following the recent death of a high-ranking Taliban commander. Co-incidentally and surprisingly, the incident tool place just a day after when Pakistani media claimed that different groups of Pakistani Taliban have formed an alliance and vowed not to attack military of the nation.
However, it has been assumed that the death of the prominent terrorist might have compelled the decision of the militants and they abducted the troops on Dec 23 and finally killed them.
Senior police official of the country has been quoted by local media as saying, "From the look of it, it seems they had been shot dead early Thursday morning."
"We have been trying to get them freed. And we have had contact with their captors and until last night the indications that we had were very, very positive. God knows what happened afterwards," said the official while expressing their disappointment of being failed to save the lives of the kidnapped troops.
