A delegation to investigate the killing of Amer Abdul Sattar and four others in a National Directorate of Security (NDS) operation has not started its task yet, said a member of the delegation on Thursday.
The appointed delegation consists of Habib Afghan, Mirdad Nejrabi, Iqbal Safi and Abdul Razaq Hashemi, from the
Wolesi Jirga; Shafi Ghorbandi, Qadar Ahmadi and Sayed Rahman, who are relatives of Amer Sattar; and also Ayoub Salangi and Qasim Jangal Bagh, two former military officials. These are the nine members of the team.
The government said that the appointed delegation has started their task, but a member of the delegation said they in fact have not started their task yet.
Ayoub Salangi, a member of the investigation team, said: “Up to now I was not aware of my membership.”
Almas Zahid, adviser to the president, said: “The delegation will start their work tomorrow and we will punish those who conducted the plot.”
Meanwhile, relatives of Amer Sattar today held a pray ceremony for him and four others who killed in the accident.
Luj Mir, a relative of Amar Sattar, said: “the NDS doesn’t have any evidence, because it was a plot.”
Amer Sattar was a former Mujahideen leader who was allegedly killed with four others in an operation by the NDS special unit in the north of Kabul, sources say.
Shafi Ghorbandi, a relative said, “Ghani vowed to investigate the issue and called the NDS and interior minister on that day.”
The NDS said they will wait for the findings of the investigation team.
