KABUL – The Ministry of Interior (MoI) will remove ineffective check posts from Kabul City and will increase patrols and search operations and surprise raids in a bid to improve the security situation of the capital, an MoI statement said.
As per the statement, the process of removing ineffective check posts has started and the removal of such check posts has completed in the 11th police district of the city while other parts of the city would be covered eventually.
“Leadership of the MoI requests the residents of Kabul city to assist with the mobile units of the police forces and inform the authorities regarding the suspicious activities,” the statement added.
According to the statement, the latest approach will help with the effective management of resources, reduce vulnerability of the police forces, and create chaos among the criminal networks.
MoI has also warned that Afghan National Police (ANP) forces have the right to open fire and has requested the residents of the city to fully cooperate and adhere to the instructions of the police forces.
