Militants killed nine members of an anti-Taliban militia on Wednesday in Pakistan's Northwestern city of Peshawar, police said.
A group of about 25 militants attacked the house of militia chief Israrullah Khan on the city outskirts, killing him and eight of his relatives, AP quoted police official Jamal Khan as saying.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack.
Earlier in February, the militia chief's son and two other people were also killed after they shot dead a militant commander.
Khan’s militia fought and blocked infiltration of the militants from the surrounding tribal regions.
