The compound had been transferred to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s name after Osama was shot dead on May 2, 2011, in a secret military operation conducted by American army.

The military operation which took more than twenty minutes, involved three American helicopters and Special Commandos of the United States army. The troops landed on the upper floor of the compound and allegedly shot to death Osama Bin Laden. One helicopter was also destroyed during the operation.
