Role in the death in custody of Jamal Naseer[edit]

An 18-year-old Afghan militia soldier, named Jamal Naseer, was captured with seven other militia-men in March 2003.[1] Members of the Green Beret team who captured Naseer and his comrades were under investigation because it was alleged that they hid his death, colluded and falsified their reports. CBS News reported, on September 21, 2004, that former Paktia Governor Dalili confirmed that he had requested a Green Beret officer named "Mike" to apprehend militia soldiers who were conducting illegal roadblocks, on the Khost-Gardez highway, and extorting money from travelers. CBS News identified Dalili as the current Governor of Wardak Province.
