JALALABAD (PANinfo-icon): A roadside bombing killed a senior police officer and wounded his two subordinates and a civilian in the Chaparhar district of eastern Nangarhar province on Tuesday, an official said.

The Chaparhar deputy police chief, Naeem Khan, was on a patrol in the Sari Kala area when a roadside bomb tore through his vehicle at 11:00am, said Ahmadzai Abdulzai, the provincial government spokesman.

He said it was a powerful blast that killed Khan on the spot and injured two policemen travelling with him and a civilian. The injured were rushed to a nearby hospital with multiple injuries.

Abdul Khaliq, an eyewitness, confirmed the blast and the casualties in the explosion.

A doctor, wishing not to be named, said they had been delivered a dead body and three injured people from the scene.

Governor Maulviinfo-icon Attaullah Ludin condemned the attack and called it the handiwork of Afghanistaninfo-icon’s enemies.
