KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Dozens of residents on Tuesday rallied in the Shahr-i-Naw Park of Kabul, seeking the removal of the Nahrin district police chief of northern Baghlan province

Haji Basir Javed, head of the Cultural and Social Council of Nahrin district, accused the police officer, Hussain Tahir, of fanning differences between different ethnic groups. He demanded Tahir’s resignation.

 Murder, theft and usurpation of land and other crimes have reached their peak in Nahrin, where the presence of unauthorised individuals has surged as well.

Shamsur Rahman Faqiri, a resident of Nahrin, said he had come to Kabul to raise objection against Tahir. Different tribal groups had been in conflict with the each other, he alleged.

The protestors, numbering around 50, voiced their concern over the police officer’s wrongdoing and asked the government to sack him immediately.

In case the authorities ignored their demand, they warned of wider protests, including the closure of the Kabul-Baghlan highway and establishment of protest tents in front of UNAMA officer in Kabul.
