TOLO News says dozens of residents of Panjshir province staged a demonstration in front of the provincial governor’s office on Sunday to protest the killing of an innocent resident by the forces of the Islamic Emirate in the province.

The protestors carrying the dead body reportedly called on the Islamic Emirate to hold the perpetrators accountable.

They said that the government forces shot dead an innocent resident in Anaba district of the province.

“As the governor, is he governing or killing the people?” a protestor said.

The protestors said that the government should ensure justice and prosecute the perpetrators.

The head of Panjshir's security department, Abdul Hameed Khorasani, confirmed that a resident was killed by the Islamic Emirate forces due to misinformation, according to TOLO News.

“He was killed by security forces based on the wrong information they had received. The people protested and came in front of the governor’s office. The Islamic Emirate leadership team’s promise to the people is that anyone who commits such actions will be prosecuted,” he was cited as saying by TOLO News.
