MAIMANA (Pajhwok): The Khwaja Sabzposh district chief in northwestern Faryab province has accused policemen of handing over the strategic Shahsawar valley to the Talibaninfo-icon.

Abdullah Masumi told Pajhwok Afghan News three policemen conspired to surrender the strategic area to the insurgents on Sunday night.

He said four reserve police personnel were stationed in the valley, including Niamatullah who invited the fighters and gave them the valley’s control early in the morning.

Mansour Ahmad, a police commander in the area, said the three policemen had recently joined the force. They took away three weapons and a walkie-talkie.

The strategic valley was also surrendered to the Taliban a month back.
