Preparations were made to perform the funeral prayers of DSP Gul Muhammad Khan and Gunman Naseem Gul first at Police Line Lakki Marwat at 7 am, but later it was decided to offer the funeral prayers at Police Line Bannu instead of Police Line Lakki Marwat.

According to the police spokesperson, there was a fear of security threats during the funeral prayers in Lakki Marwat, and due to security concerns, it was decided to perform the funeral prayers of the two officials in police lines.

It should be noted that for the last year, the police have stopped patrolling after an evening in Lakki Marwat district, increasing theft, dacoity, and attacks on the police across the district.

DSP Gul Muhammad Khan was promoted last month and was posted as DSP Lakki Marwat last week. He had earlier served as SHO in various police stations of Lakki Marwat.

On the other hand, 8 terrorists were killed in the operation of security forces in Dera Ismail Khan.

According to the Public Relations Department of the Pakistan Army (ISPR), security forces conducted an intelligence-based operation on information about the presence of terrorists in Dera Ismail Khan, in which 8 terrorists were killed. Arms, ammunition, and explosives have been recovered from their possession.
