Uruzgan police chief warns against dereliction of duty

Uruzgan police chief warns against dereliction of duty

Sep 30, 2016 - 15:36

TIRINKOT (Pajhwok): The new police chief for central Uruzgan province, promising reforms, on Friday issued a stern warning to negligent personnel.

Brig. Gen. Wali Khan Haideri, in an exclusive interview with Pajhwok Afghan News, said he would do his best to put an end to insecurity in the province on a priority basis.

While promising reforms in the force, he said: “I have come here render sacrifice.” Policemen committing dereliction of duty would be punished, he added.

The incoming police boss also vowed to honour the personnel who exhibited valour and professionalism in defending Uruzgan.

Meanwhile, Governor Mohammad NazirKharoti believed joint efforts would minimise the existing problems. He hinted at a plan to recapture the area under Talibaninfo-icon’s control.

Provincial council members, tribal elders, youth and civil societyinfo-icon leaders recently asked higher-ups in Kabulinfo-icon to pay more attention to Uruzgan’s development.

They were assured the authorities would take urgent steps to improve the situation in the province, including security.

Fierce clashes around the provincial capital, where gunshots continue to ring out, have scared residents.

But Kharoti said determined efforts would be made to flush out the Taliban from their strongholds and enforce the government’s writ in as many areas as possible.
