MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): Militants have executed 25 people on spying charges in the Nejrab district of central Kapisa province, residents claimed on Wednesday.

Fearing more executions at the hands of the insurgents in the Afghania area of the volatile district, some inhabitants have already left the area for safer places,with a semblance of security.

Lal Agha, a resident of the restive locality, told Pajhwok Afghan News the fighters killed the 25 individuals they suspected of spyingon them for the government. Nabi was the latest victim, who was gunned down recently. 

Sartor, who hails from Khalil Khel area, accused the insurgentsof killing at least one innocent civilian every week on the trumped-up charge of spying for the government.

Haji Tila Mohammad, a tribal elder from the area, alleged the guerrillas had killed 25 individuals over the past of five years. Some men were killed in broad daylight and others secretly.

Qais Qadiri, the governor’s spokesman, confirmed the Talibaninfo-icon had gunned down some people in Afghania locality, but he had no information about the number of victims.

He said the rebels, who also executed common people, largely targeted tribal elders for supporting the government. Qadiri slammed the militants’ disregard for civilian lives.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Karim Faiq verified the displacement of some families from the area due to the fighters’ atrocities.He said efforts were underway to flush out the insurgent. 

In the past, a number of people were executed by the guerrillas on similar charges in Tagab and Allah Sai districts of the province.
