Sikh man shot dead in Afghanistan

A Sikh man was abducted from his home and gunned down by suspected militants in Afghanistan’s restive Nangarhar Province bordering Pakistan, a media report said on Sunday. Sardar Rawail Singh, who lived in Jalalabad, was abducted from his house on Saturday morning by militants wearing military fatigues and killed in Khalis Famil area. The incident triggered a massive protest by the minority Sikh community who staged a demonstration by placing the body of Mr. Singh in front of the Provincial Governor’s house in Jalalabad and demanded the arrest of the killers. — PTI
