The provincial police chief of southern Kandahar province Gen. Abdul Raziq has said he is prepared to join Afghan forces to retake the control of areas seized by the Taliban militants.

Gen. Raziq was speaking to reporters in Kandahar province as sporadic clashes still continue in parts of provincial capital of Kuduz province after it fell to Taliban control last Monday.

He said he is ready to join the Afghan forces in Kunduz if he receives instructions from the government.

Criticizing the provincial administrative and security officials for remaining reckless regarding the security situation of Kunduz city which resulted to the fall of the city to Taliban, Gen. Raziq said Kunduz is one of the key provinces of the country and called National Security Council to take immediate steps to return peace and stability in this province.

Gen. Raziq rose to prominence after 2001 when he was serving as the police chief of Spin Boldak district with his activities prompting dread among the Taliban fighters.

He has imposed an uneasy peace in Kandahar province which was the birth place of the Taliban group.

Being a prized target for the Taliban group, Gen. Raziq ordered the Afghan forces earlier in August last year to execute Taliban detainees who are arrested during the military operations.

Gen. Raziq has escaped a number of coordinated attacks planned by Taliban to assassinate him. He was slightly injured following a suicide attack nearly three years ago, while Taliban militants launched coordinated attack on his family home in Spin Boldak district back in July last year.
