“Security commanders and provincial officials were bashed for neglect; Taliban accused of brutalizing civilians”
AT-KABUL: The civil society bodies said that security commanders and provincial officials’ negligence have led to fall of Kunduz city to the Taliban.
The civil society activists in a gathering claimed that Taliban insurgents after seizure of Kunduz tortured innocent people, destroyed and torched public properties. They stressed that life of thousands of dwellers of the city is in danger.
Abdul Wodood Pedram, a civil society activist, said that residents of Kunduz city are living in a very critical condition and are deprived of basic facilities.
“Human rights are being violated; people have no access to healthcare services, water and food. The militants have set on fire government buildings,” he said.
Sidiqullah Tawhidi, another participant of the session, said that Taliban insurgents have captured houses of government employees, looted stores and banks.
He said that the government should take immediate action to retake Kunduz city. He added that delay in military operations will prove an irreversible blunder.
