Pakistani Taliban Tuesday publicly shot dead a man for allegedly killing two brothers in North Waziristan tribal region near the border with Afghanistan, a correspondent in the region said over phone.

Waheed, 25, was killed by Taliban group led by Hafiz Gul Bahadar in a ground at Miranshah, the center of North Waziristan in the presence of hundreds of people, he said, requesting not to be identified due to security concerns.

Waheed was brought to the ground blind-folded and his hands were tied.

A local official said that the body was thrown later near Miranshah with a note which said that Waheed was executed as he had killed two brothers in Miranshah. It said that the Taliban council had handed down death sentence for Waheed.

Locals said that Waheed had shot dead two brothers, Waheed Zeb and Alam Zreb, in Miranshah Bazaar last month over a minor dispute. Both were students of Miranshah degree college.

Taliban had arrested Waheed after the incident and had taken him to unknown destination.

In 2009, the Taliban group, which controls North Waziristan, had also publicly executed several people for their alleged involvement in murders and robberies.
