Father of Kabul hotel attacker says son trained in Pakistan
AVA- In a video released by Afghanistan’s intelligence agency, Abdul Qahar, a resident of Kandahar province, said that his son went missing for one year and half before he received call from his son who said that he was studying in a madrassa on the mountains of Chaman in Pakistan’s Baluchistan province.
He said that he repeatedly urged his son to return home, but failed.
He went on saying that Taliban invited him to Chaman where militants showed him his son’s images, videos and belongings. He said that he refused to take them back home, except for his son’s dress saying he would deliver it to his mother.
“I told them that I wouldn’t accept belongings of a killer even if he is my son or brother,” he said. “I told them that I wouldn’t accept Pakistan’s orders.”
