GARDEZ (Pajhwok): Unidentified gunmen shot dead a member of the peace committee, his son and a bodyguard in southeastern Paktika province on Wednesday, an official said.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Qader Gul Zadran told Pajhwok Afghan News that Mohammad Ishaq, his son and bodyguard were gunned down at around 10:00am.

He said police had launched an investigation into the incident and a manhunt for the gunmen had been mounted. But no one had been arrested as yet, the police chief added.

Mohammad Umar, an eyewitness, said: “An individual clad in military uniform shot at Ishaq’s bodyguard first and then at his son before entering the room and spraying Ishaq with bullets.”

A renowned tribal elder, Ishaq was also head of the Shia community council in Paktia. He campaigned for Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdullah Abdullah during the presidential election.
