KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Civil societyinfo-icon groups are sending a joint delegation to central Maidan Wardak province tomorrow for investigation into the Jalrez incident.

Local official say 24 Afghan Local Police personnel were killed and their posts captured by armed insurgents during attacks in the Jalrez district earlier this month.

The security posts have been recaptured and a team appointed by the president has launched its investigation into the carnage. Local officials say several attackers were also killed during the clashes.

To investigate the incident, the Milli Sabat (stability), the Afghan Milli Ghorzang civil society groups and the Samoon political party have appointed a joint seven-member delegation.

In a joint statement, the groups said besides ALP personnel, civilians had also suffered casualties in the Jalrez attacks which should be investigated.

It said the groups shared the pains people suffered in Jalrez, Helmand, Badakhshan, Paktia, Kunduz, Kunar, Uruzgan, Khost and other provinces.

That was why the groups had decided to send a joint delegation to the Jalrez district to collect accurate information about the incident from local residents.

The delegation is expected to leave Kabul for Maidan Wardak tomorrow.

The statement urged political and the warring parties not to defame national institutes by associating them with a particular tribe.

The groups hoped the president-appointed delegation would soon come up with impartial findings.
