The two Sikhs were in the business of spices and had shops in the Bata Tal bazaar in Sarband, about 17km from Peshawar. No group has so far claimed responsibility for the killing.

The counter-terrorism department registered a case of murder, Saddar superintendent of police Aqiq Hussain told Geo News.
