More Than 1,000 Police Arrested For Abusing Authority During Past Year: MoI

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) says more than 1,000 Afghan police were arrested for abusing their authority in past year.

“Afghan force is committed to meeting the demands of our citizens and officers abusing authority is intolerable,” the Acting Interior Minister, Masoud Andarabi said.

This comes as recently a video was posted on social media showing a police soldier beating a young girl on the side of a road in Kabul. In the same day, the Interior Ministry announced that after the video was released, police had launched an investigation into the incident, which resulted in the arrest of Ainuddin, a soldier serving in Kabul’s PD9.
