Local sources in the northern Afghan province of Panjshir told the domestic media that a Taliban military ranger vehicle ran over and injured two young men riding a motorcycle.
According to the sources familiar with the incident, the Taliban military vehicle injured two men on Monday evening, October 31, at the Rahman Khail region of Bazarak, the provincial capital of Panjshir.
Given the severity of their injuries, the two injured men were transported to a hospital in Kabul, the Afghan capital, for treatment, the sources added.
These young people allegedly worked as store owners in the Parakh market in the provincial capital of Panjshir, and as they were on their way home, the Taliban vehicle collided and ran over the two.
The sources claim that after the crash and running over these two young men, the Taliban military ranger fled the scene. The Taliban local authorities in Panjshir have yet to respond to the incident.
The Taliban’s recklessness in carrying and operating weapons and driving military vehicles, which also caused fatalities and injuries to people, has long been criticized by the Afghan people.
The locals of Panjshir province also complain that military vehicles driven by the Taliban government fighters move at an excessive speed on the province’s mountainous, narrow, and winding roadways.
