TALUQAN (Pajhwok): Two policemen and eight civilians were wounded in a clash over land dispute in the Warsaj district of northern Takhar province, an official said on Monday.

Police Chief Brig. Gen. Faqir Mohammad Jawzjani confirmed the incident and said Ibrahim Baigzad, provincial intelligence chief, clashed with local residents in the defence of his nephew.

Abdul Maab, the resident of Khanaqa area, told Pajhwok Afghan News Baigzad nephew grabbed piece of land in the area and Baigzad this morning came to the area with military tank, ranger vehicles and tens of policemen for the defence of his nephew.

“The residents of the area showed resistance with Baigzad’s nephew which resulted in the clash,” said Maab.

 Baigzad, however, rejected the claim of local residents. He said: “We visited our relatives to offer them Eid felicitation but on return local people opened firing on us.” No clash happened over the land dispute, he added.

Last year, a clash took place in Wasaj on land dispute between local commander and common people.
