Assamese Muslim couple killed in Afghanistan

A Muslim couple, Abu Nasser, and his wife, Farheen, were killed in Afghanistan in mysterious circumstances. Abu had recently joined Mazar-e-Sharif University as professor of English.

He hailed from Tezpur in Assam and had joined the English department of Mazar-e-Sharif University as faculty member. There were conflicting reports about the circumstances in which they were reported dead.

As per one report, they got injured in a cross-fire involving the Taliban groups and died of bullets. However, there was another version that suggested poisonous smoke as the cause of death.

They were staying at night at a guest house in Kabul when the incident occurred. Abu was an alumnus of Don Bosco High School and had completed his graduation from Aligarh University before he got his MBA degree from Bhubaneswar.

The bodies have reached Tezpur and the last rites would be performed today. As of now, there has been no official word about the deaths. Indians have been increasingly under attack in Afghanistan in the last few years.
