ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen have shot dead the former provincial council (PC) head for eastern Kunar province, an official said on Saturday.

The body of Mia Hassan Adil was recovered in the limits of the Khewa district of Nangarhar province, police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Habib Syedkhel told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Adil hailed from the Manogi district of Kunar and served as provincial council chief. He was a 12th class graduate and a commander of the Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon party during jihadinfo-icon.

After the success of mujahidin, he resigned from active politics. Adil, however, returned to lead the presidential campaign for Dr. Abdullah in Kunar.

He contested the last provincial council election, but could not succeed. He was the brother of Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon member Saleh Mohammad Saleh.
