CHARIKARinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Over the past few days, police in central Parwan province have been preventing passengers, who looked suspects, from travelling to northern provinces.

Mohammad Ayaz, Parwan highway police commander, confirmed police had started investigating passengers, who were believed to be travelling to the north for supporting insurgents, since last week based on an order from the Ministry of Interior (MoI).

He, without providing specific number, said hundreds of passengers, who looked suspects in police view, had been barred from traveling to the northern provinces.

Some passengers on the Kabulinfo-icon-Parwan highway welcomed enhanced security checks on the road, but others complained innocent people were intimidated during searches.

Eidgul, a passenger from Qara Bagh district of Kabul, said he wanted to travel to northern Baghlan province on a 303 public transport bus, but he was not allowed by police.

“The inspection is good if poor people are not tortured. Everyone who becomes suspected in police eye is sent back to Kabul, and it is a big oppression.” “I was travelling to Baghlan, where I had an important work, along with my family, but I wasn’t allowed.

Last year, security forces seized a number of trucks on the Kabul-Parwan highway for transferring insurgents with cattle to the north.
