KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): The administrative chief for the Qalandar district of southeastern Khost province has been suspended days after he called the Talibaninfo-icon holy people.

Some days back, Wreshmin Gul Bashari, speaking to media representatives about the militants’ control of the district, said that the Taliban were pious people.

A government official, who wished to go unnamed, told Pajhwok Afghan News Bashari had been suspended and fate would be determined on the conclusion of an ongoing investigation.

A commission comprising officials from the police headquarter, intelligence agency, attorney office, governor’s house, information department and other organs is probing the district chief’s statements.

Meanwhile, Bashari said his talks about the situation in the district with a private television channel had falsified.

Qalandar district, which has been under Taliban’s control for the last few years, is located east of Khost City. The district’s affairs are handled in the capital of the province.
