Family Buried Him, Yet Afghan Soldier Gets Married a Year Later | Voice of America

Nematullah Bakhtyar, 29, a member of the Afghan National Army (ANA), was thought to have been killed while fighting the Afghan insurgents in southern Afghanistan in mid-2018.

In July 2018, his family received a body. They were devastated by his death, leaving his parents weeping for the loss of their son. They held a funeral and buried the body.

In early 2019, less than a year later, his father received a phone call from an unknown number that left him in a state of shock. On the other side of the phone was Bakhtyar. The father, who did not want to be named, told VOA that he thought someone was pranking him.
