The armed drug distributors shot a resident of Qala-e-Ali Mardan area in PD1 of Kabul city during a verbal contention two days before the Eid-ul-Adha.

The victim’s family members say that Naqebullah was killed in front of his father and two children’s eyes after he asked the drug distributors to leave the area close to his house.  

Naqebullah had two children and a wife. 

“No one can come outside of their house because of the armed drug distributors,” said Lina, the victim’s wife.

“They [the drug distributors] shot my father from his behind,” said the daughter of the victim.

The brother and father of the victim say that the irresponsible gunmen have killed many people in the area so far though the National Directory of Security agency is located close to the area.

The government does not have the ability to arrest the gunmen, they add.

“My son told them [the drug distributors to leave the area. They replied to him, ‘what can you do if we don’t’. After my son turned, they shot seven bullets,” said Mohammad Ehsan, father of the victim.

“The crimes which take place here are not followed. Even the government employees are being beaten by them [drug distributors],” said Samiullah, brother of the victim.

Meanwhile, the officials in the Kabul Police say that they have arrested one person in connection with the incident.

“We have arrested one person and other people who are suspected are wanted,” said Ferdous Faramarz, the Spokesperson to the Kabul Police.

This comes as the security situation in Kabul has arisen concerns for its resident; armed robberies even during the days are simple of the many forms of insecurity in addition to suicide attacks and bombing.

Afghanistan’s Foreign acting Minister Amir Khan Muttaqi accused the international community on Friday (October 15) of “violating the rights of Afghan people” by not recognizing the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) government.

Speaking to Reuters on the second day of a two-day visit to Turkey’s capital of Ankara, Muttaqi said he discussed the recognition of the IEA’s government with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu as well.

“The fact that all of them are recognized and the new Islamic government of Afghanistan is not recognized is an injustice and oppression of the Afghan people… Afghanistan wants positive relations with the world and the world must respond positively to this message,” he said.

Almost two months after the former Western-backed government collapsed and IEA forces swept into Kabul, the IEA administration has pushed to build relations with other countries to help stave off a catastrophic economic crisis.

But the IEA has so far refused to give ground on allowing girls to return to high school, one of the key demands of the international community after a decision last month that schools above the sixth grade would only reopen for boys.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Thursday he had conveyed Turkey’s recommendations regarding the inclusion of women in the workforce and education of girls.
Meanwhile, Cavusoglu reiterated the importance of government inclusiveness for Afghanistan’s unity.

“We once again explained the importance of including people from all ethnic and religious groups, besides the Taliban (Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan), in the administration. Especially in these difficult times, this is important in terms of establishing unity and solidarity within the country,” Cavusoglu said.

NATO member Turkey maintained its embassy in Kabul after Western countries withdrew following the fall of the U.S.-backed Afghan government and have urged those countries to increase engagement.

The blast, coming so soon after the Kunduz attack underlined the increasingly uncertain security in Afghanistan as the Islamic State has stepped up operations following the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan victory over the Western-backed government in Kabul in August.
