JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The residents of Khewa district in eastern Nangarhar province on Tuesday protested against the killing of a civilian by Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel.

The protesting residents brought along the coffin of the slain person and placed it in front of the governor’s house in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.

Mohammad Yousuf, brother of the slain man, said his brother had no enmity and was killed for no crime and the murderers had fled the area.

The protesters accused the district police chief of negligence and demanded his ouster.

Shahidullah Zahid, a nephew of the slain man, said his uncle was killed in front of his eyes by the ALP gunmen in Qala Tak area at night.

The governor’s spokesman, Attaullah Khogyani, said the ALP personnel allegedly involved in the killing were relatives of the deceased, but they had no enmity.

He said the two accused ALP personnel had managed to escape but police had launched a search for them.

He added a government team raided the house of the ALP personnel and their family members were questioned.
