Police Monday found the bullet-riddled body of a kidnapped female health worker dumped in a field in northwest Pakistani on Monday, an official said.
Salma Ghani, about 32 years old, was taken by five unidentified men from outside her house in Peshawar, the main city in northwest Pakistan, on Sunday.
Senior police official Rahim Shah told AFP Ghani's body had been recovered from a wheat field on the edge of the city. She had been shot several times, he said.
"It is not yet clear whether she was killed for taking part in polio vaccination drives," Shah said.
