Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan executed 21 soldiers kidnapped during an attack on a checkpost on Thursday near Peshawar, a private TV channel reported.
According to reports, bodies of the paramilitary soldiers were dumped in Hassn Khel, Peshawar. Their hands were tied with the ropes before shooting them dead.
Local Jirga members were sent to retrieve the bodies while families have been informed about the incident.
Only one was found wounded who was admitted to a hospital while another managed to escape.
It is pertinent to mention that TTP commander Hakimullah Mehsud had said a day ago that the Taliban were willing to negotiate a ceasefire while refusing to disarm.
