JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Unidentified motorcyclists on Saturday gunned down judge of anti-corruption court in Jalalabad City, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, the governor’s spokesman said.

Ahmad Zia Abdulzai told Pajhwok Afghan News that the judge was shot dead at around 8: 00 am in Maulviinfo-icon Khalis locality. The attackers managed to flee but police had started raids to nab the killers, he added.

Samiullah, an eyewitness, said that Abdul Mateen, the judge, was heading toward his office when he came under attack. However, no one so far claimed credit for his killing.
