FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): An unidentified gunman shot dead a member of the provincial peace committee in western Ghorinfo-icon province, an official said on Monday.

Nasrullah Nasrat, also a former commander of the Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistan (HIA), came under attack from a gunman on a motorcycle in front of the operational police unit in Ferozkoh, the provincial capital, when he was buying fruits at a stall late on Sunday, said Abdul Hai Khatebi, the governor’s spokesman.

Ghor police chief Mustafa Hussaini said guard of Nasrat had been detained because he did not retaliate when the peace committee member was attacked.

A number of peace committee members and other key figures had previously been shot dead in the province.
