Assailants on motorbikes ambushed Singh’s car in Buner district, some 160 kilometres (100 miles) northeast of Peshawar on Friday evening and opened fire, slaying him on the spot as the Pakistani Taliban claimed culpability for the killing.

Punjab Deputy CM Sukhbir Badal expresses shock over killing of Sikh politician .In his condolence message, Badal described Dr. Soran Singh as “a multifaceted personality being a member of Pakistan Sikh Gurudwara Parbandhak Committee (PSGPC) and Evacuee Trust Property Board”.

This is not the first instance, Several Sikhs have been kidnapped for ransom recently. Such incidents surely raises doubts over the safety of minorities in Pakistan especially those who are economically well-off, are often threatened for money that is used to foster terrorism and fanaticism.
