Border police officer, daughter gunned down in Zaranj

Jul 19, 2016 - 14:03

ZARANJ (Pajhwok): Unidentified motorcyclists have shot dead a border police officer and his 10-year-old daughter in Zaranj, the capital of southwestern Nimroz province, a security official said on Tuesday.

The assailants fired bullets at Col. Abdul Rahim Monday night when he was knocking at the gate to his house in the fourth municipality district. Rahim daughter was initially wounded as she opened the door, the official said.

But later on, she succumbed to her injures at hospital. Mohammad Ghaus, a relative of the slain policeman, said the Talibaninfo-icon had attacked Rahim last year as well; he was wounded but returned to his job after sometime.

Nimroz security officials have opened an investigation into the incident,but no arrests have been made so far in connection with the double murder.
