Policeman killed in Peshawar grenade attack: police
[Dawn] At least one policeman was killed and two other people were maimed Thursday in a grenade attack at a police checkpost in the northwestern city of Beautiful Downtown Peshawar of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province), administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistan's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire.
, DawnNews reported.

According to initial reports, the police check post was located in Peshawar's Pahari Pura area.

Senior Peshawar police official Sajjad khan told news hounds that the attackers had targeted a police checkpost. "One policeman was killed and two other people were maimed as a result of the attack," he said.

The injured were shifted to Lady Reading Hospital. No group has so far grabbed credit of the attack.
