07 December, 2012
KABUL: Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday dispatched a team to probe the murder of a young girl in the central province of Kapisa.
Anisa, 17, a 10th grade student and a polio vaccinator volunteer, was shot dead by unidentified gunmen when she was on her way to hospital from her. So far no one had claimed responsibility for her murder four days ago.
Karzai ordered the team to investigate the root cause of the murder and seek assistance of the governor’s office, provincial council and other officials, said a Presidential Palace statement.
The team would complete its investigation in four days and later submit their report to Karzai.
