The sources claimed that the militants were working under the TTP’s groups led by Qari Ziaur Rehman, Qari Ibrahim and Umer.

The militants were identified as Noman, son of Alam Zeb; Alyas, s/o Ghazi; Ejaz, s/o Khushhal; Haider, s/o Badshah; and Mumtaz, s/o Gulistan, all residents of Bajaur tribal region. The bodies were brought to the Ghazi Khan Medical College teaching hospital for autopsy.
