KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): In an effort to bridge the gap between police and the public, the long-awaited police FM radio has started broadcasting programmes, Ministry of Interior officials said on Sunday.

Gen. Mohammad Ayub Salangi, the acting interior minister, after inaugurating the radio station, said it would be an effective tool of communications between police and the people.

He added people could directly contact ministry officials through the channel and share security-related problems and other grievances. The radio would also help counter malicious propaganda of insurgents.

Sediq Siddiqui, the Ministry of Interior spokesman, said the radio would air programmes in Dari and Pashtoinfo-icon languages from 7:30am to 4pm.

Initially, the radio will cover Kabul and its surroundings, airing news and educational programmes. The project cost 3 million afs.
