AT-KABUL: Unidentified gunmen attempted to storm residence of a well known political analyst Jawed Kohistani on Monday night.

Kohistani said that gunmen fled the area, when they were spotted by local residents.

The Ministry of Interior in a statement said that Kabul police and National Directorate of Security (NDS) sent a team to the area to investigate the incident.

“The team could not find any evidence regarding presence of unidentified gunmen in the area,” the statement added.

Based on investigation of the team, a border policeman and a Kohestani’s neighbor, opened firing in the air when he thought some gunmen were trying to attack Kohistani’s house.

Recently unknown gunmen shot Ahmad Syedi in the head but he survived the attack.
