KANDAHAR, Apr. 15 – Reports arriving from Kandahar city say that Khan Muhammad, the provincial police chief was standing in the front gate of the police headquarters along with several of his personnel when a Mujahid of Islamic Emirate (Abdullah)

carried out a martyrdom attack on them. It is said that the police chief was killed in the blast along with 12 of his body guards and high ranking police officials also killed and wounded.

Khan Muhammad was a resident of Arghandab district who was appointed as the provincial police chief in September 2010. The aforementioned person was a well-known gunman even at the time when Taliban’s Islamic Movement was in power and was later on removed from all posts by the Americans after using him for their goals. Khan Muhammad once again decided to help the American invaders in the later years by accepting the position of provincial police chief and promised to clear Kandahar city from the presence of Mujahideen after the invading forces came under extreme pressure from Mujahideen strikes and were unable to bring the province under their control after repeated operations.

The head of Mujahideen operations in Kandahar city (Haji Ahmad Saeed), in an interview with Alemarah had personally asked Khan Muhammad to stop helping the invaders and sit back in his home or else he would become Mujahideen’s top priority. After this warning, Khan Muhammad was targeted 3 times but managed to survive each time however was killed in today’s detailed plan.

Islamic Emirate once again invites all those working for the defeated invaders under the names of local police or other armed groups to lay down their weapons so not to become Mujahideen targets and warns, if they continue with their actions then their fate will be that of Khan Muhammad, God willing.
