Gunmen on a motorcycle on Sunday shot dead a leader from a hardliner Sunni religious group in Pakistan in an apparent sectarian attack, police said.
Maulana Mazhar Siddiqui, from the Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) group, was travelling in a car when attackers on a motorcycle opened fire on him in Rawalpindi city, neighbouring the capital Islamabad.
Siddiqui, who was spokesman for the ASWJ in the city, "died on the spot while two of his accomplices were wounded", a police official told AFP, requesting anonymity.
A spokesman for the group confirmed the killing.
More than 200 activists from ASWJ later staged a sit-in in Islamabad protesting Siddiqui's death.
It is widely believed that the sectarian group Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan renamed itself as ASWJ after being banned in 2002.
Pakistan is facing rising sectarian violence with prominent Sunni and Shiite figures often coming under attack in all major cities of the country
