Kabul police chief, Gen. Zahir Zahir said Istalif was executed along with five perpetrators of Paghman gang rape inside the Pul-e-Charkhi prison.

Former President Hamid Karzai signed off on death penalty for Istalif on late last month.

Istalif was found guilty of major kidnappings, murder, armed robberies including robbery of $3 million World Bank money and other major criminal activities.

Istalif was arrested by Afghan police forces in capital Kabul earlier in October last year while he was plotting to arrest a businessman in Kabul.
