A former member of the parliament, Mursal Nabizada, and her guard were killed in an attack by unknown gunmen at her home in Kabul’s District 12 on Saturday night, said an official.
Khalid Zadran, a spokesman for the Kabul security department, said that Nabizada’s brother was wounded in the attack.
Relatives of Nabizada said that gunmen killed her and a guard on Sunday morning at her house.
They called on the Islamic Emirate to arrest the perpetrators.
“I heard the gunfire and when we went down, they (attackers) had left and my daughter was lying on the ground with blood on the bed alongside my son. The guard was also killed,” said Nabizada’s mother.
“There was no personal hostility. I don't know if it could have been a political issue, but there was no personal enmity,” said the sister of Nabizada.
Meanwhile, Zadran said that efforts are underway to find the perpetrators.
“The investigative teams have arrived at the scene. There are hopes that the perpetrators will be arrested and brought to justice,” he said.
Mursal Nabizada was born in 1372 solar year in Nangarhar.
She was elected as a member of the parliament in 2018 in the 17th round of the Lower House of parliament to represent the people of the capital city, Kabul.
