Intelligence official found dead in Zabul
QALAT (PAN): An intelligence official was mysteriously found dead in southern Zabul province, officials said on Tuesday.
His bullet-riddled body was found in an area between Qalat, the provincial capital, and Shahr-i-Safa district late on Monday.
Deputy Governor Mohammad Jan Rasulyar said the National Directorate of Security service-member's murder was being investigated.
Resident Abdul Karim told Pajhwok Afghan News the official named Rahmatullah was his neighbour.
He had gone to the Kalachi area, where he was shot dead by Romanian soldiers who mistook him for a militant, Karim claimed. The official was on duty when he confronted foreign troops.
But Rasulyar said it was yet to be determined who killed Rahmatullah.
