During the killings, there was a soldier of Indian origin, Arjun Purja Pun, who had been murdered in the killings. The reporter from Kabul stated, that he had no been in contact with the Taliban before the killings, and that shooting the soldiers was all his idea. Later after this he went and reportedly joined the Taliban.

BBC stated that they could contact the man only after Taliban contacted them. In Hussein’s statement, he said that he conducted this killing because of the conduct of the soldiers towards the Afghani people, as they had killed many innocent lives when they were stationed there.
