A student, Sanaullah Jan was killed with at least two others by a drone strike as they drove in a car from Miranshah to Mir Ali.
Jan was a grade 11 student at the Government Degree College Mir Ali, according to a complaint filed at the UN in Geneva about his death. He was studying high school subjects preparing him to study engineering. However broadcaster Al Jazeera reported he wanted to be a doctor.
His family and friends insisted he had no interest in the Taliban. He was on his way to Miranshah from Mir Ali with two friends when the drones attacked.
Their bodies were burnt too badly to recognise. But his ID card was recovered from the scene by his brother Khairullah Jan, a first-year student at the same college.
