PESHAWAR - A soldier of Pakistan Army who committed suicide earlier this week has been identified by Peshawar police.

Ziaur Rehman, 30, a resident of Chitral, had killed himself by jumping off the Arbab Khalil flyover on Wednesday morning.

Police officials told the local media that the man was found with just a CNIC in his pocket but investigations later revealed that he was from Pakistan Army’s Kashmir regiment, belonging to platoon FC 37.

The deceased had reportedly spent a five-day leave at home in Chitral and was on his way back to Kashmir via Peshawar as per his routine.

The motive behind the suicide is yet unclear.

Earlier this week, Captain Khurram Tariq, from 62 Baloch Regt, died after developing medical complications following a hair implantation in Lahore.
