Mullah Sherin hatched assassination of Gen. Raziq, claims ex-NDS Chief

The former Afghan Intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS) Chief Rahmatullah Nabil claims that a key member of Taliban’s Quetta Council Mullah Sherin had hatched and executed the assassination plan of Kandahar Police Chief Gen. Abdul Raziq.

In a statement posted online, Nabil said the attacker was trained in Al Hamza training center where suicide bombers are being trained under the supervision of Taj Mir who is also famous as Mawlavi Zabiullah.

Nabil further added that Taj Mir has close links with the Haqqani terrorist network and the military intelligence of Pakistan.

However, he said Mullah Sherin hatched the assassination plan in close coordination with ISI and cooperation of one of the security guards of Kandahar governor who had helped in the appointment of the attacker as the security guard of the governor.

According to Nabil, the governor’s guard who helped in the execution of the plan has managed to flee the Kandahar city.

Nabil also added that Mullah Sherin has close links with the Haqqani network’s Sirajuddin Haqqani, currently operates as Taliban’s intelligence chief and is based in Quetta city.

The provincial intelligence chief of the province Gen. Abdul Momin was also killed in the attack while the provincial governor Zalmay Weesa sustained injuries.

The attack was carried out by one of the security guards of Kandahar governor Zalmay Weesa.

  1. What the name and origin of the security guard who helped in the hiring process of attacker?
    He must be exposed to public with evidence.

    What actions are taken against him?

  2. Rahmutallah Nabil speaks with the authority of a former top insider. However, this still lacks corroboration and NDS and ISI are known to compete and quarrel rather than cooperate. That said, ISI is reliably believed to maintain links formed during the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan to militarily active armed groups; similar links are due to animosity towards India especially due to the unresolved Kashmir conflict.
    Nabil appears to be risking at least his own life and his access to classified information from his former colleagues- why he would do so is a reasonable and necessary question. If this info is accurate it is either a rogue ISI operation and indicative of a possible ISI-Taliban rift or a frightening new insight and new low for the ISI.
