AIBAK (Pajhwok): Police shot dead a young girl after raiding her home on a tip-off about gambling activity in northern Samangan province, an official said on Sunday.

The 20-year-old girl, Farzana, was killed in Karte Saleh area in the limits of 2nd police district of Aibak city, the provincial capital.

Mohammad Nasar, a member of the provincial National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) and Farzan’s brother, told Pajhwok Afghan News that a number of policemen surrounded their house at around 2pm on Saturday.

He said when police entered and started searching their home, a policeman fired at her sister and killed her. “Why the policeman killed my sister is unknown; but I believe he wanted to kill me.”

Meanwhile, Lt. Col. Abdul Alim Baik, an official at the Samangan Police Headquarters, confirmed the incident, saying reports showed gambling was carried out every day at the NDS official’s home.

He said police after receiving a search warrant from the appellate court surrounded and searched the NDS official’s house for arresting gamblers.

Baik said the policeman who killed the girl was in custody and his case was being investigated.

“After searching the house, it was ascertained that there was no gambling at the house, and no one existed at the home except the NDS official’s family; but due to a false tip-off, we did the operation.”
