Afghan Parliament member Mohammad Arif Rahmani said the district governor, intelligence service director and a deputy police official were killed in the attack, as well as 15 security forces.
Rahmani said the attackers planted mines to stop reinforcements from coming to help the government forces fend off the attack.
Moseni said the government reinforcements later joined the fighting.
He said eight government security forces were wounded.
