Rasool Shah, a senior local police official, said the attackers opened fire on Zaman Mehsud, 40, in the remote Tank district of the volatile region on Tuesday.
The official added that Mehsud was rushed to a nearby hospital with fatal injuries following the assault. However, he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
“Zaman Mehsud was riding his motorcycle when gunmen waiting along the road opened fire,” media outlets quoted Shah as saying.
