Slain Doctor Buried in Baghlan, Justice Sought

The remains of Dr. Khalil-ur-Rahman Narmgo, head of the surgery ward of Baghlan-e-Markazi district hospital, who was assassinated in an attack in Baghlan by unidentified armed men on Tuesday evening, was laid to rest on Wednesday in his hometown.
 
Narmgo’s loved ones and colleagues said that he served as doctor for four decades besides his media and civil activities.
 
They said that Narmgo was even travelled in areas under the control of the Taliban to treat the people.
 
Nargmo’s family meanwhile called on the Afghan government to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to justice.
 
“He served this nation for forty years and never left his country and devoted himself to serve the people. He was travelling to other provinces where there were no doctors,” said Baktash, the son of Narmgo.
 
“We don’t know who  is really doing this? The Taliban or the government—we call on the government to arrest the killers,” said Arash Doshiwal, a relative of Narmgo.
 
“All his works and services must be remembered in history,” said a journalist in Baghlan, Habib Rahman.
 
Narmgo’s colleagues said that there are serious questions behind his murder which need to be answered.
 
“We appeal to the security and intelligence agencies in Baghlan to launch a serious investigation into the incident,” said Mohammad Akbar Barakzai, the governor of Baghlan.
 
“He served the people of Baghaln through his expertise without any discrimination,” said Abdul Azim Ghafari, the deputy head of the Baghlan health department.
 
The Taliban have denied any involvement in the murder.
 
Targeted killings have hit Afghan civilians hard over the past few months.
 
The UN figure indicates that up to  1200 Afghans were killed in targeted killings in  2020.
