Baghlan authorities reported that Aziz Ahmad Panjshiri, a professor at Kabul University, was killed on Wednesday by Taliban militants along the Baghlan-Kunduz highway.
Provincial police spokesman Ahmad Jawed Basharat stated that Panjshiri’s body has been transferred to a local hospital in Baghlan’s Markazi District.
Meanwhile, Khalil Narmgoi Chief Surgeon at Baghlan Markazi Hospital told Ariana News that their investigations show that Mr. Panjshiri was almost 65 years old and killed by a gunshot.
The Taliban insurgent group has not commented on the issue yet, although Baghlan police hold them responsible for the death of Mr. Panjshiri.
Mr. Panjshiri retired from teaching at Kabul University almost four years ago and was currently working with The Kabul Municipality and Ministry of Information and Culture.
