Local sources told Afghanistan International that Abdul Ghafar Saber, one of the former Jihadi commanders, was assassinated on Monday, in Rostaq district of Takhar province.
Saber's relatives have also confirmed his death.
So far, the motive behind his murder is not clear.
A source said that he was one of the companions and commanders of Piram Qol Ziaee and was probably killed due to personal enmity.
On the other hand, in the past two years, commanders and former security forces members have also been killed in the same way, which was attributed to revenge killing of Taliban members.
