QALAT (Pajhwok): The presence of ‘ghost personnel’ in police ranks has been brought to zero in southern Zabul province after reforms, a Ministry of Interior (MoI) delegation said on Thursday.

Maj. Gen. Niamatullah Haidari, head of the MoI delegation dispatched to Zabul province to evaluate reforms and security situation, said all affairs related to police headquarters were evaluated during the past ten days.

He said the presence of ghost policemen had been reduced to zero and new individuals had been hired.

He acknowledged police had evacuated some check-post in parts of the province but said security forces occupied them again and adopted an offensive strategy against insurgents.

He assured the residents of Zabul province that militants were only strong in their propaganda campaign but unsuccessful on the battlefield.

Fighting has intensified in parts of Zabul in recent months and has resulted in heavy casualties to security forces.
