Khanwada (age 27) found with bullet wound to the head
On Thursday evening I received information on the death of yet another person who had been detained in custody in Pakistan. Khanwada (aka Abdul Rahman) age 27 from Khowazai area of Mohmand agency was described as having a bullet wound to the head with his body dumped at the roadside. The following link gives information on Khanwada and other cases which are currently being investigated by Peshawar Court, see following link,
“Pakistan: Another day, another death in detention, Khanwada allegedly shot and dumped”

Subject… Shahadat of our brother
“Our brother Khanwada aka Abdul Rahman from TTP Jamaat-ul-Ahrar has been martyred yesterday in a fake police encounter at Karachi. Brother Abdul Rahman was arrested by Pakistan Army about eleven months ago. Brother Abdul Rahman belonged to Khowazai area of Mohmand Agency.
Pakistan Army has continued its previous evil tradition of executing the prisoners from their jails and we shall not remain silent over the extra- judicial killing of our companions, InshaAllah. We also have many soldiers in our prisons and Pakistan Army should not force us to treat those prisoners as we treated 23 FC personnel a few months ago.”
Enforced disappearances, torture in custody and extra-judicial killings are a form of “state terrorism” and only increase the security risk to the people of Pakistan due to retaliation attacks. This unethical, unlawful and irresponsible behaviour of state agencies is of grave concern to human rights organizations who call for such actions to cease.
