KABUL forces were involved in the killing of former Kandahar police chief.

Gen. Abdul Raziq and provincial National Directorate of Security (NDS) chief Abdul Momin Hussainkhel were killed in the gun attack that left some other officials including Governor Zalmai Wesa wounded on Thursday after a high level security meeting at the governor’s house.

NATO and US forces top commander in Afghanistan Gen. Scott Miller was also present in the meeting but he escaped injury in the insider’s attack staged by a guard of the governor.

Some media reports following claimed the firing took place after a verbal dispute between Raziq and Miller.

But CEO Abdullah told a Cabinet meeting these false rumors were being spread by the enemies of Afghanistan’s people and their supporters.

The CEO termed the rumors as enemy’s plot.

However, the Taliban have taken responsibility for the attack.
