India on Sunday asked Pakistan to sincerely investigate the killing of two Sikh businessmen in northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and take strict action against those responsible for the “deplorable” incident.

Two Sikh men were brutally gunned down in broad daylight by unidentified assailants in Pakistan’s Peshawar city.

“Sadly, this is not the first such case or a rare occurrence,” the Ministry of External Affairs said in a strongly-worded statement further terming it a “shocking and deplorable incident”.

In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs said, “We have seen the reports on brutal killing of two Sikh traders by unidentified armed men in Peshawar. Sadly, this is not the first such case or a rare occurrence. Grave concerns have been expressed by various quarters of the Indian civil society and the Sikh community at this shocking and deplorable incident. We have registered our strong protest with the Government of Pakistan on continued targeting of members of the minority community in Pakistan. We call upon the authorities concerned to sincerely investigate the matter and take strict action against those responsible for this deplorable incident. We expect that the Government of Pakistan, in discharge of its responsibilities, will look after the safety, security and well-being of its minority communities”.
