Abdul Zuhoor Qayomi-KABUL: President Ashraf Ghani has appointed a delegation to probe allegations that the National Security Council (NSC) has distributed $200,000 among families of Daesh fighters.

Speaker of the Wolesi Jirga (WJ) Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi on Wednesday said that President Ghani has appointed a special team to probe the allegation posed by the Paktika governor that the NSC has supported families of the Daesh fighters financially in the province.

He said that the president had asked him to include some MPs in the delegation.

The speaker of WJ informed the plenary that when the lawmakers expressed their concerns over increasing insecurity across the country and financial support to Daesh the president assured him to investigate the case.

He said that growing insecurity and financial support to Daesh would be on top of the agenda next week.

Member of the Defense Committee (DC) of the WJ, Shukria Barekzai, said that every day Afghans are killed by different groups while the government has not sent security strategy to the parliament.

She expressed her concerns over insecurity and asked the president to send political guideline and government’s development programs to the WJ.

It is worth to mention that newly appointed governor of Paktika, Karim Matin, accused the National Security Council of sending $200,000 to Daesh fighters’ families in the province.

He said that though he informed the NSC about the funds, but received no response.

The Meshrano Jirga or senate has also decided to summon the NSC officials and Paktika governor to dig for more information in this regard.
