Afghan forces raid Pakistani village, kill 2 'Taliban suspects'

12 February, 2012

QUETTA: Afghan security forces raided a house inside Pakistan, kidnapped two suspected Taliban fighters and later shot them dead, sources said on Saturday.

The incident took place in Badini area close to the Afghan border.

"The Afghan forces raided the residence of tribal elder Sadullah Kakar and whisked away two Taliban suspects," the sources said.

The house is located more than a kilometre inside the Pakistani territory, they said, adding that the Afghan forces violated the borders, attacked the residence of Kakar and took with them two persons Abdullah and Muhammad Sarwar Shabozai.

Residents of the area confirmed the two people had been shot dead by Afghan forces. Officials said the Afghan authorities had not returned the bodies of the slain Pakistanis. The relatives of the victims said, however, that three people had been abducted and killed by Afghan forces. The third victim, according to them, was identified as Din Muhammad.

Taking strong exception to the border violation, the Balochistan government has informed the Foreign Ministry about the incident. "We have convened an immediate meeting with the Quetta-based Afghan Consul General through the Foreign Ministry to discuss the incident that took place in Qilla Saifullah," said Balochistan Home Secretary Nasebullah Bazai.


Reader Comments:

Granted Pak rulers do not have the ability to even think of challenging their masters for killing 26 Pak soldiers, but surely the Iranis can be asked for handing over the soldiers involved for trial. Or is it that the Iranis are collaborating with their dear friends, the US.

Or is it that the gas deal with Iran has further emasculated the non-virile leadership of Pak?
