The head of Aga Khan National Council for Afghanistan has reportedly died as a result of a car crash in the northern Badakhshan province, local sources confirmed.

According to reports from the northern Badakhshan province of Afghanistan, the head of Aga Khan National Council for Afghanistan and two of his colleagues have disappeared as their car fell into the Amu River in Ghazdara area of Miamai district of Badakhshan on Thursday afternoon.

Amir Baig, the head of Aga Khan National Council for Afghanistan, Dawlat Sherdil, the head of Aga Khan’s National Council for Badakhshan and Noor Ahmad Ahmadi, another senior member have been killed as a result of a car accident at 5:00 PM on Thursday, a local source told Khaama Press.

“Out of the four people inside a Toyota LandCruiser SUV, only driver the driver has survived who is now in a local hospital.”, the source said.

Hundreds of people gathered on Friday both side of the Afghanistan and Tajikistan border to search for the dead bodies, the source added.

A day later, another source from the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) speaking with Khaama Press on Saturday evening told that neither the bodies and nor the vehicle were found on the Afghan side and now a rescue team from Tajikistan is searching with boats across the Amu river.

The reason behind the incident has reportedly been the worse condition of roads in the area and also the lack of understandings of the driving challenges by the driver who was new for such roads.

The northern Badakhshan region is in lack of paved roads despite billions of foreign aid funds have been spent in Afghanistan for building the infrastructures, but due to the unbalanced distribution of funds across the country, Badakhshan has received much lesser than it needed.

  7. As the news spread in Canada, we first thought it might not be true as Afghanistan’s office has not yet formally announced about their death. But, as we spoke with families and relatives in Eshkashim Badakhshan, unfortunately the news is true and they have been drowned in the Amu river as their car crashes to something at the side of the unpaved and difficult road.

    May their soul rest in peace and hope Hazir Imam gives patience and sabre jamil to their family members.

  13. Many people in the community talk about the loss of 5 million US Dollars in cash in this incident. It is a big question that what were they doing with the cash and how could they have withdrawn such a big amount from FMFB. The HQ in Eglimond must seriously investigate this case. They might have taken away the money and might have his somewhere. If this is not correct, reply my comment with updated info about him.

  14. رییس صادق و خوب قونسل افغانستان فقط میراحمد جوینده بود. کسانیکه رفتند و ناپدید شدند بخاطر اعمال شان بود. باز هم خداوند ببخشد و مغفرت نماید.
