KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Hamid Karzai has sacked the mayor of western Herat province for misusing his position, the Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) said on Tuesday.

IDLG urged the president to fire Mayor Mohammad Salim Tarakai after an investigation against him. Tarakai recently beat a doctor, sparking an angry protest from the doctors' community.

In line with its recommendation, IDLG said the president had dismissed the mayor, who has also been accused of grabbed state-owned land.
