Apr 02, 2011 - 15:30

ASADABAD (PANinfo-icon): Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have killed a prosecutor seven months after his abduction in the eastern province of Kunar, an official and the family said on Saturday.

The attorney of the Asababad appellant court, Ghulam Hasan Gharwal, was kidnapped by the Taliban on Sept. 5, 2010 on his way home in Shinkorak area of Shigal district.

"The Taliban kept my father in Shigal district, but later they shifted him to Marawara district before an operation by Afghan and international troops," his son, Abdul Wakil, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

"My father was old and weak, who could not even walk faster, but Taliban killed him three days ago," he said.

He said they brought Gharwal's body to the Asadabad civil hospital with the help of tribal elders

Counter terrorism department head, Abdul Matin, said the body had been released to his family.

Villagers of the prosecutor detained four people of Gugar tribe on the accusation of kidnapping the attorney, but they were freed last month.
