14 police detained on criminal charges

14 police detained on criminal charges

Sep 22, 2014 - 18:30

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Fourteen police officials have been detained on charges of committing different crimes, the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said on Monday.

MoI spokesman Siddiqui Siddique told reporters in Kabul the ministry’s crime branch and intelligence officials had been directed to keep an eye on police personnel involved in suspicious activities.

As a result of the vigil, he said, 14 policemen had been arrested for having links with rebels, bribery and misappropriation of food stuff and power abuse, he added.

Meanwhile, Maj. Gen. Abdul Hakim Najrabi, the investigation department head at the MoI, said another 65 police officers had either been punished or introduced to the attorney office after they were found guilty of trivial crimes.

He said 27 police vehicles had been grounded after their documents were found illegal and 229 police drivers had been warned by traffic officials for not respecting traffic rules.

Meanwhile, MoI crime branch chief Maj. Gen. Abdul Ghaffar Syedzada told reporters there had been a surge in crimes during the past six months due to the protracted electoral process.

He hoped crimes would decline after the two presidential candidates had reached an accord on forming a national unity government.
