LASHKARGAH (PANinfo-icon): Families of police officials killed in the line of duty received food assistance in southern Helmand province on Thursday, an official said.

As many as 825 police officials' families supported, the provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Muhammad Hakeem Angar, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Each family was given 100 kilograms of flour, 10 kilograms of ghee and 50 kilograms of rice for Ramadaninfo-icon and Eid, according to Gen. Angar, who also promised the aid recipients land plots.

Elder Ahmed Shah, who called the assistance inadequate, said his two sons serving in the police force were martyred last year. Shah said he faced problems feeding and clothing his grandchildren.
