'Pakistani Taliban militants involved in Sushmita Banerjee’s killing’

The plan was hatched in Pakistan and the three militants worked with Akbar Musafir, the local commander of the Afghan Taliban in Paktika, where it is also part of the Haqqani network. The provincial authorities have released the information to the press Thursday, said an official source in New Delhi.

Banerjee, 49, was dragged out of her home and shot dead by suspected Taliban gunmen in Sharan city of Paktika on Sep 5.

Banerjee had defied her family to marry Afghan businessman Jaanbaz Khan. In 1998, she wrote the bestselling memoir "Kabuliwalar Bangali Bou (A Kabuliwala's Bengali Wife)", offering a vivid description of the suffering of women under the Taliban.
