Mr Malik was of the view that the governor of Kunar should also be booked in the murder case as all the fugitive Taliban were operating from his province. It may be noted that the governor of Kunar is Shujaul Mulk Jalala, whose forefathers migrated to Afghanistan from Chitral in the early 20th century and settled in the Jalala area of the neighboring country. He also remained member of Afghan parliament and an adviser to President Hamid Karzai before becoming the governor of Kunar last year. Since the Swat operation of 2009, Chitralis have also stopped using the Taliban-infested Kunar-province route during winter when the Lowari pass remains closed due to snowfall for about four months. A few years back, Talibal intruders also killed about 40 personnel of the Chitral Scouts in the Arandu valley of Chitral.]]>
