Kabul police on Friday announced that the killer of Mursal Nabizada, a former member of the Parliament of Afghanistan was arrested.
Khalid Zadran, the spokesperson of the Kabul police command said on Twitter that the murderer of Mural Nabizada and one of her security guards was arrested, and confessed to the crime.
Mursal Nabizada was killed by unknown gunmen in her home in the Arzaan Qemat area in provincial district 12 of Kabul on January 14.
Mursal Nabizada and her security guard (Ismail) were killed by another security guard named Malyaar, according to the Kabul police spokesperson. Khalid Zadran added that the fugitive murderer was arrested as a result of a search operation, and confessed to his crime.
Mursal Nabizada represented Kabul in the seventh round of Afghanistan parliament, whose anonymous murder prompted widespread condemnations in the country and beyond.
Abdullah Abdullah who led the High Council for National Reconciliation of Afghanistan said on his Facebook that “Mursal Nabizada was a representative and true servant of the people, who was unjustly killed in her house. I am deeply saddened by her death, and I am hopeful that perpetrators should be punished.”
Naseer Ahmad Faiq, the representative of Afghanistan at the United Nations had said that no one is safe in Afghanistan and no one takes responsibility.
Hannah Neuman, a member of the European Parliament wrote on Twitter that she was deeply saddened and angry by the murder of Mursal Naizada. Neuman said the world should know that Nabizada was killed in darkness, whereas the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has established gender apartheid in light of the day.
Musral Nabizada was one of the few political figures who remained in Afghanistan and lived in Kabul after the Taliban seized power in August 2021.
