MAHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): Hundreds of residents on Monday rallied against possible dismissal of the police chief for central Kapisa province.

Deputy police chief Maj. Sayed Zakir Hashimi told Pajhwok Afghan News Kapisa police chief Mohammad Fahim Qayam had been summoned to the Ministry of Interior (MoI).

He said it was not yet known whether the police chief had been suspended or dismissed.

Kapisa governor’s spokesman, Qais Qaderi, confirmed the police chief had been called to the MoI but said they had received no official information about his fate.

Hundreds of residents protested in support of the police chief and blocked the Mahmood Raqi-Parwan highway against traffic.

One of the rally participants, Amir Gul, said security had improved since Fahim Qayam took charge as the provincial police chief.

He said local residents were happy with the police chief’s performance and asked the government not to remove him from the post.
