The Attorney General’s Office said their investigation into Friday’s shooting and the suicide bombings at the burial ceremony of the son of Mohammad Alam Ezedyar, deputy speaker of the Meshrano Jirga (Upper House of Parliament), who was shot on Friday, are ongoing. 

The AGO’s spokesman Jamshed Rasuli said they are making progress with their investigations.

He said they will punish any group or individual at any level if they are found guilty of charges related to either of the incidents.
