TALOQAN (Pajhwok): Three Afghan citizens have been shot dead by Tajikistan’s border guards in the Darqad district of northern Takhar province, an official claimed on Thursday.

Police spokesman Khalil Aseer told Pajhwok Afghan News three residents of the Tahiran village of the border district had gone to a local forest for collecting firewood.

“The three individuals, who crossed the border into Tajikistan, came under gunfire from the border police,” the police spokesman added.

Naeemullah Rahimi, a civil activist, said: “We also came to know of Tajikistan forces killing the three Afghan citizens in Darqad district.”

Tajik security officials have so far said nothing about the incident.
