An 80-year-old man was stabbed to death by multiple attackers in the 16th police district in eastern Kabul.
The man's family members claim that he was stabbed to death by three attackers behind their gate on Tuesday.
“They attacked him with a knife, hit him twice with a knife, and then hit him with their hands. When he shouted and we went out of the house, they fled,” said the wife of Gulbar Khan.
“They killed our elderly father, they have left a scar on our hearts. We call on the Islamic Emirate to arrest my father's killers,” said Rassida, Gulbar Khan's daughter.
Gulbar Khan's family members say that he did not have animosity toward anyone and they called on the Islamic Emirate to punish the perpetrators.
Gulbar Khan's son said that he invited his father from Germany three weeks ago to join his wedding party.
“We ask the Islamic Emirate to arrest the killers of my father as soon as possible and punish them,” said Ehsanullah, Gulbar Khan's son.
“He was the elder of more than a hundred people,” said Abdul Samad Hotak, a tribal elder.
In the meantime, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate says that they have started an investigation into the matter.
“We promise that the security forces of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan will make efforts to address the issue you mentioned,” said Inamullah Samangani, deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.
Although the security forces of the Islamic Emirate have always spoken of providing security in the country, some citizens have expressed concern about the killings and crimes in Kabul.
