The attackers entered the temple early in the morning, where at that time there was a religious gathering like every day. Afghan security forces have surrounded the property.
The Taliban deny anything to do with the attack. About two years ago, Islamic State fighters attacked a gathering of Sikhs in Nagarhar province. As a result, nineteen people died. The eastern province of Nagarhar is the home of ISIS terrorists who are also countered by the Taliban.
