  • Array

AT-KABUL: Civil society activists in northern Balkh province urged the government for explanation over brutal killings of policemen in Jalrez district of Maidan Wardak province and alleged negligence of concerned security agencies.

Civil society activists in a gathering on Monday expressed their condolences to the bereaved families of the victims of Jalrez incident.

Abdul Hamid, a civil right activist, said that concerned officials have turned their blind eye towards mounting insecurity across the country. He accused the incumbent government of negligence in its duty to protect people’s lives.

The right activists urged the government to devise a special mechanism to bring lasting insecurity across the country.

The activists also criticized the appellate court decision of overturning the death sentences of four men who were convicted in a brutal mob killing of Farkhunda.

Malalai Osman, an activist, stressed that justice should be done.
