According to a source in the State Committee for National Security of Tajikistan, the incident occurred in the Shamsiddin Shokhin region bordering Afghanistan.

A clash with an armed group, possibly Afghan smugglers, occurred last night near the village of Languriho of the area,
said the agency interlocutor.

Colonel Akhmatov died on the spot, four soldiers were hospitalized with serious injuries.

Based on their condition, it is possible to transfer by helicopter to the military hospital of the city of Dushanbe,
added source.

As stated in the official statement of the State National Security Committee, the clash in which the commander of the border detachment died, occurred at the checkpoint, "when the guards tried to stop a group of armed drug smugglers from Afghanistan."

Not obeying the order to stop, the armed violators opened fire on the border guards, as a result of which a colonel was killed during a clash ... three Afghans were killed, four border guards were wounded,
says release.

It is reported that "four Kalashnikov assault rifles and 33 kilograms of drugs were discovered at the scene of the clash." Currently, the search continues for hiding criminals.

“During the nine months of this year, 26 combat clashes occurred on the Tajik-Afghan border, as a result 13 drug smugglers were neutralized, one trespasser was injured, 19 was detained,” the department said.

The total length of the Tajik-Afghan border is 1430 kilometers, and the Shamsiddin Shokhin (formerly Shurabad) district is the busiest part of the border because of the complex mountainous terrain, which often causes smugglers to clash.

          The other day there was an infa: the Americans are moving to northern Afghanistan in connection with the concentration of ISIS militants (I regard between the lines for their supply and cover). Two weak links are impoverished Tajikistan on the path of drug trafficking and Turkmenistan with a gas field, a third of which is in Afghanistan.
          A matter of time, before or after the New Year.

        And also Mountains ...! There are some of the youngest mountains that have just begun to grow in forests.
        the most intense section of the border due to the difficult mountainous terrain,

        These mountains are to the very border of Kyrgyzstan with Kazakhstan and along the entire border with China. 20 years ago, a tribe was found in Kyrgyzstan that did not know that the USSR was and that it collapsed. The currency is yaki, goats, soap and alcohol, and the most expensive is women with wives (If memory does not confuse).

          Some kind of fake. Was in the late 80s in Kyrgyzstan in practice (geodesic). All the mountains climbed, I didn’t notice any particularly deaf places - everywhere flocks with shepherds. And the Internet does not mention anything like that.
          By the way, where did they get soap and alcohol from, if not from the USSR?

        Dima, you yourself know very well how the United States is crying for its Afghan "magic garden." They do not have profit in the first place, but superprofit. All the costs of the process in the form of victims and everything related are not even secondary, but at the end of the list.

    You are mistaken. Now the Taliban makes good money from it. Was there information about the concentration of militants on the borders of the Central Asian countries of the former Soviet Union. Was there even a statement in the CSTO in my opinion? It’s not for nothing that the United States built its garrisons along the border in Afghanistan. They prepare saboteurs. Ivashov is said a long time ago. Meanwhile, they themselves accuse Russia of delivering weapons to the Taliban. Although in fact they themselves are arming it, along with ISIS

    Shuroabad is a difficult mountainous region. It, as Mountain Badakhshan, is extremely difficult to control. Even in the 90s, our border guards bore this burden, though they were training Tajiks with might and main (the officers, contract soldiers, DSH units were ours, but local and non-commissioned officers were recruited). Now the Tajiks themselves keep their border, and die in shootouts with drug dealers. Although, from my point of view, the POGO commander (level of brigade commander in the army) was not supposed to personally control the transition, nor take part in the shootings, it might have happened by accident ... But if it’s specially, then it’s bold, but unwise.
