Senators Worried Over  Increasingly Insecure Kabul

KABUL - Members of the Meshrano Jirga on Sunday expressed their deep concern over what they called increasing insecurity in Kabul and vowed to share their concerns with the president in this regard.
Insecurity has increased and criminal cases emerge on a daily basis in capital Kabul where a doctor of the Jamhoriat hospital was abducted by unknown armed men a few days back.
It’s worth mentioning that snatching mobile phones, other valuables at gun point and burglaries have increased in Kabul and to draw the government attention, Facebook users have launched a campaign “Kabul is not secure” on the social media platform.
MustfaZahir, a lawmaker, told today’s session that no one was secure in Kabul as a person could be killed for his or her own car or mobile in the capital. He said security forces had failed to ensure the safety of citizens.
Mohammad Alam Ezdiyar, first deputy speaker of the house, said insecurity and criminal cases were increasing with each passing day in Kabul.
He demanded harsh punishment for those committing such crimes, adding, “Authorities concerned should take serious measures against the perpetrators of crimes.”
Fazal Hadi Muslimyar, Meshrano Jirga chairman, also expressed his concern over the increasing insecurity and crimes in Kabul.
“I will personally share the Senate concerns with President Ashraf Ghani and then share the issue with authorities concerned.” (Pajhwok)
