LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): A Musa Qala district council member and two of his family members were gunned down by unidentified militants in southern Helmad province, an official said on Wednesday.

This incident took place near the district headquarters late on Tuesday, when three gunmen on motorcycles opened fire on him, the governor’s spokesman, Daud Ahmadi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Haji Abdul Baqi and his son were killed on the spot while his grandson succumbed to his  wounds at a healthinfo-icon facility of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon), he added.

No one has so far been detained on charge of the murder, but police have launched investigation into the case, the gubernatorial spokesman concluded.
