Afghanistan: Kabul residents say armed robberies have increased in city

Kabul: Some Kabul residents have criticised a spike in armed robberies in some parts of Afghanistan's capital by irresponsible armed robbers.

They directed the Taliban government of the country to ensure the security of the people.

"Everyone abuses the Islamic Emirate's name and uniform. They stop the people wherever they want, they are responsible for the robberies,” Mohammad Zubair, a resident of Kabul, told Tolo News.

"We ask the Islamic Emirate to ensure security; robberies and car theft should be reduced,” Javid, another resident of Kabul, told Tolo News.

This comes as the former governor of Nuristan province, Mohammad Omar Shirzad, told the news portal that armed individuals wearing the uniform of Islamic Emirate forces took away his armored car five days ago in PD5 of Kabul.

“Last Monday at 1:30 pm several armed Taliban who identified themselves as the Taliban of PD 5 came to our house located in Khushal Khan Mina, in the fifth district, and took my armored car, for which I had a national security card,” Shirzad told Tolo News.

The security forces in the country, however, denied a rise in armed robberies in the city.

They said  more than 30 irresponsible armed individuals have been arrested in the previous month.
