Transfer order of Qarabagh police chief sparks protest

AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: A large number of people organized a peaceful protest on Tuesday against a presidential order, transferring the entire police station in Qarabagh district of central Kabul province.

Abdul Sami Sharifi, the district’s administrative chief, said Qarabagh police chief including the whole staff of the police station had been transferred in compliance with a president decree.

He said new personnel had not been appointed so far.

The residents came out on roads at 8am chanting slogans “we want security,” “we want peace” until ending their rally at 11am local time.

Mir Hamza, one of the protestors told to local media, the police chief and all personnel of the police station under him had always struggled to secure the district.

He was worried about the security of the Qarabagh district if the presidential order was enforced.

But the district chief termed the assertion of the protestors as baseless, saying the security personnel were transferred following people’s complaints and insecurity in the district.
