HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Herat police chief has resigned and his replacement, Col. Rahmatullah Safi, would assume the office soon, an official said on Monday, a day after industrials ended a four-day-old strike that brought to a halt industrial production in the western province.

The strike began on Friday, when the dead body of a 9-year-old boy, the son of an industrialist, was found in the Injil district, one and a half month later he was kidnapped for ransom.

Deputy Herat police chief Noor Khan Nikzad said his boss Syed Abdul Ghafar Sayedzada had resigned and his replacement Col. Safi, a border police commander, would take the charge as soon as he arrived in Herat city.
