The First Vice President General Abdul Rashid Dostum demanded the immediate release of his close ally and former police chief of Qaisar district of Faryab Nizamuddin Qaisari.

Gen. Dostum raised the demand shortly after returning to Kabul and appearing before a press conferene in his office in Kabul.

He said he will hold talks with President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani regarding the release of Qasairi.

However, he warned that he will leave the country once again if President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani did not accept his demand for the release of Qaisari.

This comes as sources close to Junbish Milli Party had earlier said that the First Vice President General Abdul Rashid Dostum will step up efforts for the release of Commander Nizamuddin Qaisari after his return to Kabul today.

A spokesman of Junbish Milli Party, Bashir Ahmad Tahyanj, said Commander Qaisari will soon be released from the detention facility of the Intelligence Directorate.

He said Commander Qaisari will be shifted to his accommodation after his release from the Intelligence Directorate’s detention facility where the First Vice President would be able to visit him.

Tahyanj did not disclose further information in this regard but added that the peaceful protests would continue regarding the recent upheavals and further decisions will be jointly taken after Gen. Dostum’s return.
