KASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): Security officials blame growing insecurity in southern Helmand province on administrative corruption and drug trafficking.

Brig. Gen. Abdul Rahim Chakhansouri, 505th Bust Zone police commander, said besides militants, corruption in government departments also contributed to insecurity in Helmand.

The police commander said this while addressing a graduation ceremony for hundreds of policemen who completed their course.

Without going into details, Chakhansouri said drug trafficking, corruption and illegal activities were main factors behind insecurity in the restive Helmand.

He said individuals who snatched police force privileges or were involved in drug and weapons smuggling should shun the illegal acts if they wished security in the province.

Chakhansouri said reforms had been launched to resolve corruption and smuggling related issues.  He informed around 2,000 police were under training in Helmand and of them 233 completed their training on Monday.

Acting Helmand Governor Ghulam Muhauddin Sedique told the new police graduates to implement justice and maintain law and order in societyinfo-icon with new skills and professionalism.
