Kajran in danger of falling into Taliban’s hands

Oct 23, 2013 - 19:25

TIRINKOT (PANinfo-icon): Residents have warned the Kajran district in central Daikundi province could fall into Talibaninfo-icon’s hands if the government did not pay attention in this regard.

They told this to the provincial governor, who along with the 205th Atal Military Corps commander, the Kandahar police chief, ISAFinfo-icon commander in the south and other high ranking official paid visit to the troubled town a day earlier.

Kajran ulemainfo-icon council chief Mullahinfo-icon Syed Hassan told Pajhwok Afghan News all roads connecting the town with the rest of the country had been closed by insurgents over the past several months, sending food prices soaring.

Another resident of the area, Haji Mauladad, said a large number of insurgents had sneaked into the town from Baghran district of southern Helmand province.

He said if the government did not carry out a massive military operation, the district could fall into the hands of Taliban insurgents.

Governor Amir Mohammad Akhunzada confirmed the claim, saying insecurity in Kajran threatened the security situation in central Uruzgan province. He also recommended a military operation should be conducted in the district.

The 205th Atal Military Corps commander, Gen. Abdul Hamid, said military operations would be conducted in all parts of the district where the Taliban held sway.
