JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A gunman shot and killed one policeman and injured another before he was killed in retaliation in the capital of eastern Nangarhar province on Saturday.

The gunman disembarked from a coaster vehicle near a police check post in Khalis Fameel area of Jalalabad city in the limits of the sixth police district and opened fire at the police, said Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman.

He said the attacker was also killed by the police and his body remained at the scene.

A resident of the area, Sharifullah, said the attacker first entered a verbal clash with police and then both the sides exchanged fire.

He had no information about casualties, but said the road remained blocked for several hours against traffic after the incident.
