CHARIKAR (Pajhwok): Two people were killed and a third was injured in a clash between two families over a land dispute in the Bagram district of central Parwan province on Saturday.

Par wan crime department head, Col. Abdul Samad Zalmai, told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident occurred in Jafarkhelo locality.

A man prevented his nephew from planting trees on their ancestral land, sparking a verbal clash between the two.  

It followed a brief armed clash between the two families, in which the uncle, who claimed the land was his property, and a son of his nephew were killed and a second son of the nephew was injured, Col. Zalmai said.

He said police had reached the area and had initiated their investigation but no one had been so far arrested. He said the injured person was in stable condition.

Haji Shamsul Haq Shikhani, secretary of the Parwan provincial council, confirmed the incident that he said resulted from an old animosity between the cousins.
