So students who appeared in an examination paid 400,000 rupees to a target killer to kill the Director Examination, so that they don’t fail. Bizzare! https://t.co/vu2ZwrDa08

Recent developments suggest that the motive behind the assassination of Irshad Khan can be traced back to a group of disgruntled students who harbored resentment due to his refusal to disclose information regarding the PPSC examination paper. According to journalist Iftikhar Firdous, “Students, desperate to secure a passing grade, offered a substantial sum of 450,000 rupees to a contract killer with the intent of eliminating the Examination Director.” Shockingly, it has come to light that an employee of the PPSC KP was also complicit in this sinister plot, as confirmed by the KP Police.
In an encouraging turn of events, the authorities have successfully apprehended four individuals involved in this heinous crime. Tireless efforts are currently underway to apprehend the remaining perpetrators responsible for the tragic demise of Irshad Khan, who tragically lost his life on July 23rd of this year.
