Kabul: A key Taliban commander was killed in Afghanistan`s Kunduz province by policemen, police said Tuesday.
"Policemen shot dead Taliban key commander Mullah Rashid in Kunduz province during an operation Monday evening," said the province`s Inspector General of Police Abdul Razaq Yaqubi.
Rashid was on a motorbike along with his guard when he came under police attack and was killed on the spot, but his guard escaped, the police officer said.
