Taliban claim Polish engineer’s beheading
 
ATTOCK: The Dara Adamkhel chapter of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed to have killed kidnapped Polish engineer Peter Stanczak.

A purported TTP spokesman told reporters the banned group had decapitated the Polish engineer who was kidnapped from Attock on September 28 after the government failed to release some Taliban from custody. He said the move was in accordance with a Taliban shura order that Stanczak be killed if the government does not release the Taliban.

He said the Taliban would not surrender the foreigner’s body until the government accedes to their demands, adding that the Taliban would release a video of Stanczak’s beheading within four days.

Peter Stanczak, who worked for Geofizyka Krakow Limited, was kidnapped on September 28 after the Taliban killed his driver and a guard near Pind Sultani village in Attock district of Punjab.

Later, the TTP claimed responsibility for his abduction and demanded release of some Taliban who are in government custody. The government has yet to confirm the killing of the Polish engineer, however Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said his country received “informal confirmation” of the engineer’s death. A spokesman for the Polish embassy in Islamabad, Piotr Adamkiewicz, told AFP: “We got the information of his death from different sources, we consider it is 99.99 percent true, but we have no proof or official confirmation.”
