Provincial governor spokesman Omar Zwak confirming the report said Marjah district attorney chief, Lal Mohammad was killed early Sunday morning after his vehicle struck with a roadside bomb.
Mr. Zwak further added the incident took place around 7am local time while Lal Mohammad was on his way towards his work place.
No group has so far claimed responsibility behind the incident however Taliban militants frequently use improvised explosive device as the weapon of their choice to target Afghan and coalition security forces and Afghan government officials.
The Taliban-led insurgency has been rampant since the group announced its summer offensive late last month, and vowed to carry out attacks against the security forces, government officials and diplomatic institutions across the country.
