Progress in Amer Sattar’s  Murder Case: Probe Team

KABUL - The team tasked with leading the inquiry into the killing of Amer Abdul Sattar – a former mujahideen leader who was killed in an operation by the National Directorate of Security (NDS) earlier in January-- is making rapid progress in their investigation into the raid.
The details of the probe will not disclosed until the investigations are completed, a member of the task team said on Saturday.
The Presidential Palace (ARG) meanwhile said that proper action will be taken once the probe team wraps up its investigation.
Officials from the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) have also demanded clarification into the operation that led to the killing of Mr. Sattar and four others, saying the outcome of the investigation should be shared with the public.
The ten-member probe team, composed of officials from the parliament, National Security Council, Ministry of Interior and other relevant sectors, was formed ten days back by the order of President Ashraf Ghani. The task team was asked to investigate the raid  on Sattar’s house that was carried out by special units of the NDS. The NDS confirmed the operation but still has not commented on its details.
