“I could not sleep through the night. I was doing my morning prayer when I received a phone call. It was terrible. We are even afraid here,” said Ahad, a relative of Mohammad Khan.
“We urge the Islamic Emirate to find the killers and secure justice for our martyrs, so it becomes a lesson for those who commit such actions,” said Abdul Manan, brother of Mohammad Khan.
The Kabul security department meanwhile rejected the attack on Mohammad Khan’s house and said the incident was due to family disputes.
