An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity said the gunmen adorned in black regalia, were moving on a convoy to an unknown destination when they suddenly stopped and attacked the community.

He said, “Our community is a peaceful one. While we were just discussing about political issues, they pulled up in the community, and started attacking people. They killed two men and a woman”.

Further he said, “Our community has been thrown into mourning this evening. It is even more worrisome that the police and other security agencies did not show up while it lasted for over 30 minutes.
