Kabul, May 11 (IBNS):  A former woman journalist from Afghanistan and a cultural advisor to the Wolesi Jirga (lower parliament) was killed by unknown gunmen in Kabul city, media reports said on Saturday.

Mina Mangal had worked as a news presenter for three local TV networks in Kabul, including LEMAR TV, Shamshad News, Ariana TV, and she was cultural advisor for the Wolesi Jirga, reported Tolo News.

She came under attack by unknown gunmen in Kart-e-Naw area in Kabul’s PD8 on Saturday morning, the statement was quoted as saying by the news portal.

The police have reportedly started investigating the matter.

According to The Guardian, Nasrat Rahimi, a spokesman for the interior ministry, said one or possibly more assailants escaped from the scene.  

"No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Kabul police said it was not clear whether the murder was a terrorist act or the result of a personal dispute. Islamic State and Taliban militants regularly carry out attacks in the capital," reported The Guardian.

Mangal's relatives told Radio Free Europe that she had been waiting for a car to take her to her job as a cultural adviser for Afghanistan’s lower chamber of parliament, the Wolesi Jirga.
