The protesters carried the dead body of the victim to the office of the provincial governor and asked for justice.

The angry protesters were chanting “Death to Taliban”, “Death to stooges of Pakistan”, and “Long live Ahmad Masoud”, the report said.

Residents of Annaba district claimed that the slain Nazir Aqa, 24, was murdered by the Taliban affiliates but the motive behind the killing is yet to be unveiled.
