FEROZKOH (Pajhwok): An education officer at the police training center in western Ghor province was killed and three policemen were wounded in an ambush by intelligence agents, an official said on Tuesday.
Deputy police chief, Col. Murtaza Musleh, told Pajhwok Afghan News the police training director had travelled to Charsadda district along with a number of policemen to probe a criminal case without informing security organs.
He said 2nd Lt. Sayed Gul was killed and three policemen were wounded in a National Directorate of Security (NDS) ambush on their way back to the provincial capital late on Monday.
“These policemen had traveled to Charsadda district without coordination with security organs; they also misused their weapons,” he said.
