It should be noted that there has been an increase in violence in Afghanistan in recent days.
Gunmen attacked a police station in Afghanistan last week, killing three officers. Immediately after the attack, a heavy contingent of security forces cordoned off the area and sealed off traffic.
It may be recalled that a car bomb had exploded in Nangarhar province of Afghanistan on October 3, killing 15 people, including Afghanistan’s international umpire Bismillah Jan Shinwari, and injuring 30 others.
