Taliban get weapons from police: Kapisa governor

Taliban get weapons from police: Kapisa governor

Apr 11, 2017 - 21:09

MEHMOOD RAQI (Pajhwok): The governor on Tuesday said the Taliban received 90 percent of weapons and ammunition from their sources in police in central Kapisa province, but the police chief rejected the figures.

Governor Asadullah Hashimi told a gathering held for establishing ‘a transparent committee under the police framework’ here that there were heroes in security forces who offered their chest as shield, but there were others in the same forces who sold weapons and ammunition to militants who then used the same against the forces.

Kapisa police chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Raziq Yaqoobi said some security officials might be selling weapons and ammunition to militants, but the figures provided by the governor were not correct.

The police chief assured of taking serious action against police officials who were involved in selling arms to the Taliban. He said one local police commander had been detained on similar charges.

Green revolution head for Kapisa, Qari Ahmad Ahmadi, said the governor’s claim was worrying. “If our police and ministers are committed and professional people, no one can commit such treason.”
