Defence inquiry probing claims SAS member killed Afghan businessman and planted gun on body | ABC News 

A secretive inquiry probing the activities of Australian special forces in Afghanistan is investigating allegations an SAS member gunned down an Afghan businessman and then planted a pistol on the body to make it look like self-defence.

The incident is one of a growing list of killings that are being examined by the Inspector General of the Australian Defence Force’s inquiry, which is being overseen by New South Wales Supreme Court judge Paul Brereton.

In April 2011, SAS members raided a warehouse in the capital of Uruzgan Province, Tarin Kot, and shot dead prominent businessman Hayat Ustad.
