SHARANA (Pajhwok): Bullet-ridden bodies of six members of a family were found inside their home in southeastern Paktika province on Wednesday.

Provincial Civilian Hospital Director Dr. Chinar Sediqi confirmed receiving six bodies from Karkhel area of Sharana, the provincial capital. He said the slain people included a girl and all had been shot to death.

A surviving member of the family told Pajhwok that unknown gunmen entered their home late Tuesday night and killed six members of his family.

He said, “We have no enmity with anyone, we don’t who were the attackers.” He said a brother and a sister of his were among the killed.

He urged the government to find the killers and bring them justice.

But a resident of the same area, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok a policeman was also among the slain people.

He said the Talibaninfo-icon killed the family as one of its members was in police.

The Taliban have not yet commented in this regard.
