QALAT (PANinfo-icon): An advisor to the educationinfo-icon department in southern Zabul province has been shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Pakistaninfo-icon’s southwestern Balochistan province, an official said on Wednesday.

Deputy Governor Mohammad Jan Rassoulyar told Pajhwok Afghan News Asadullah Khakyar was gunned down in the Kachlagh area of Balochistan on Tuesday evening.

He slammed the killing of Khakyar, also a former jihadiinfo-icon commander, as a grave injustice to the cause of education. Rassoulyar blamed the Talibaninfo-icon for the advisor’s murder.
