KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Kabul police chief on Tuesday said extraordinary security measures had been put in place in and around capital Kabul to ensure that the Eidul Fitr celebrations passed off peacefully.

Lt. Gen. Abdul Rahman Rahimi,  told journalists strict security measures had been adopted in coordination with the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon).

“Security forces are working day and night to thwart any untoward incident during the religious festival. People need not to worry about security and they should enjoy Eid,” he added.

However, he said people’s cooperation with security forces was necessary and should contact police in special circumstances.

The police chief warned they would deal sternly with saboteurs and those out to sabotage peace.

“I urge all the families not to allow their children to use firecrackers because it would worry people as well as create problems for police,” he added.
