KUNDUZ (PANinfo-icon): A local policeman shot dead his commander and his bodyguard at a checkpoint in northern Kunduz Province, an official said on Wednesday.

“The shooting took place late Tuesday night in the Mirshikh area, on the outskirts of Chahardara District,” Abdul Momen Omarkhel, district administrative chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the victim, Ahmad Zia and his bodyguard were killed while they were sleeping at their checkpoint and the killer had fled the scene.
