Two gunnies were killed and one other was maimed in return fire from security personnel at the mosque, the media front man for the police 202 Shamshad zone told TOLOnews Sunday.
Local men from Kapisa had gathered for prayer at a mosque in the Mulayan area of Kapisa's Najrab distract on the first of the holy days of Eid when the gunnies opened fire.
None of the worshippers were harmed, but one of the security forces who returned fire was maimed, the front man said.
