Kabul [Afghanistan]: One of Afghanistan’s leading crack commanders, Lieutenant Mohammed Akbar, was killed in Wednesday night’s attack on the American University in Afghanistan.

Akbar was at the time of his death leading a Crisis Response Unit team in the university to safely evacuate the students there, reports Tolo News.

Also known as “Akbar e Daraz”, he was likened to the historic Greek mythological warrior “Achilles” for his courage and decisiveness.

He had since 2009 participated in over 30 high profile attacks in Kabul, including the attack on the Pashtani Bank, the Ministry of Justice, the Intercontinental Hotel, the Serena Hotel attack, Kabul airport attack, Parliament, Green Village guest house and many more.

He had also been involved in numerous intelligence-led night raids in various provinces of Afghanistan and had successfully led his team in helping retake Kunduz city last year. (ANI)
