KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon or Senate on Sunday asked the government to investigate the killing of a Special Police Unit commander Azizullah Karwan in Kabul.

Karwan, the special police force commander in southeastern Paktika province, was shot dead in the third Macro Rayan locality of Kabul City on Friday evening. The Talibaninfo-icon have claimed responsibility for his murder.

Karwan was home on vocation and had been planning to go abroad for medical treatment.

Meshrano Jirga or upper house members on Sunday discussed Commander Azizullah Karwan’s murder and urged the government to find those behind the incident.

First deputy chairman Mohammad Alam Izedyar told today’s session that it was questionable how Commander Karwan was killed at a highly secure place in Kabul. He urged the government to investigate the case seriously.

“The martyrdom of such Afghan National Police Officers in the heart of capital has raised a lot of questions like how the enemy entered the secure area?

Senator Juma Gul Gianwal form southeastern Paktika province told today’s session that a ten-member armed group coming in two armored vehicles killed Karwan.
