2 Taliban leaders killed in Parwan

Jun 26, 2012 - 20:14

CHARIKAR (PAN): Two Taliban group leaders were killed and their three accomplices injured during an ongoing search operation in the Ghorband valley of central Parwan province on Tuesday, an official said.

The operation is jointly conducted by Afghan and international troops, deputy police chief, Col. Ziaur Rahman Fayed, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The offensive was underway in Wazghar, Qamchaq, Sayedan, Tikhan, Sardara and Yakhdara mountainous areas, he added.

The slain rebels leaders were identified as Mullah Abu-Bakar and Rah Din. They were killed at the start of the operation, the police official said.

The Siagird district chief Mohammad Syed Siddiqui said the killed commanders as prominent members of the Taliban movement. They were involved in attacks on Afghan and foreign troops, he added.

Meanwhile, a Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the fighters blew up an Afghan army vehicle in the Ghorband valley and then attacked the troops, killing seven of them, but a claim rejected by local officials.
