KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A university teacher says his house was blown up with explosives by a joint raiding team of Afghan and NATOinfo-icon forces in Chak district of central Maidan Wardak province.

But the ministries of defence and interior said their forces were not involved in the raid while the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) media office said they were unaware of the matter.

Mohammad Shafiq Omari, a resident of Khalili Walaw Khelo locality, who is serving as a teacher at the Kandahar University, said Afghan and foreign forces raided his house on the night of January 26.

He added security forces evicted his family members from the home in freezing cold and blown up his house with bombs.  Omari said his family members were now living with relatives.

The university teacher threatened to quit the government job and join the Talibaninfo-icon if the person who gave wrong information about his house was not brought to justice.

He said the government should provide him reason why his home was bombed. He asked if his family was terrorists, then why they were evicted from the home.

Omari, who is doing his master’s in India, said the government should compensate him and the person who provided wrong information to security forces should be arrested and brought to justice.

Pajhwok Afghan News contacted Maidan Wardak police chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Wais Samimi who said the operation had been carried out by the army and they should be asked, but the Defense Ministry denied its troops were involved.

The NDS media office said they were unaware of the incident.
