Nasiruddin Haqqani’s bullet-riddled body was found in the Bara Kahu area Sunday night. He had been shot more than 20 times, reported police and they also confirmed his death

The eldest son of Haqqani Network founder Jalaluddin Haqqani, Nasiruddin Haqqani was known to be the fund-raiser and intermediary for the militant group. He was also believed to be the spokesman for the Afghan Taliban using the alias Zabiullah Mujahid.

The Haqqani Network is aligned with both the Taliban and al Qaeda. Security experts consider it one of the most significant threats to Afghanistan’s stability. The United States considers it a terrorist group.
