No organization has claimed responsibility for the murder

Crime increased after the Taliban came to power

Cases of crimes and murders have risen sharply since the Taliban took power last year. Even Taliban officials are not safe. Earlier in June, the Afghan Resistance Front (NRF) claimed to have shot down a Taliban helicopter and captured four members of the group in Panjshir province.
