Unknown attackers opened fire and left a prayer leader in Pakistan's Bajaur tribal district seriously injured on Friday, media reports said.

Police and local residents told Dawn News that the incident occurred in Inayat Kallay Bazaar near the Bypass Road after Friday prayers.

“The deceased, Zainul Abideen was coming out of a mosque when someone started firing at him,” a police official told the Pakistani newspaper while quoting the witnesses as saying.

He said that the deceased, 43, who belonged to Mamond tehsil, was critically injured in the attack.

The injured person was shifted to District Headquarters Hospital where the doctors referred him to Peshawar.

Locals said the people involved in the crime fled the scene after the incident.

No group has claimed responsibility for the incident so far.
