JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Afghanistaninfo-icon’s Independent Human Rights Commission (IHRC) on Saturday launched an investigation to determine the causes of increasing traffic accidents across the country.

The commission made this announcement at a gathering in Jalalabad, the capital of eastern Nangarhar province.

IHRC members Maulviinfo-icon Abdul Rehman Hotak and Alam Nuristani met Deputy Governor Mohammad Hanif Gardiwal, senior traffic and police officials and civil societyinfo-icon activists.

Issues pertaining to an increase in traffic mishaps came up for discussion. Last year, 3,000 people were killed in accident across the country, Hotak said.

He added the commission had initiated an investigation to point out the causes of growing road in the country.
