Political analyzers believe Kundoz fall to Taliban based on a deal but the acting Defense Minister said that negligence in duties might have taken place.

Regardless, Parliament wants key officials of this province be dragged to judiciary but the governor has been fleeing. According to the latest reports, Mohammad Omar Safi has changed at least four destinations.

A government source told Pajhwok news agency that Safi who was in Tajikistan has left to London.

The news agency is citing an Afghan diplomat in Tajikistan as writing on his facebook page that the governor first moved to Uzbekistan from Tajikistan, then he went to Turkey from where he planned to go to UK.

A Member of Parliament while confirming that Safi has fled to UK, urged the President to appoint people whose family is living in Afghanistan.

Mohammad Omar Safi was appointed as the governor of Kundoz province in December 2014, about three months after the National Unity Government was formed.

After arriving in Kundoz, Safi promised clearing the province from militants and other illegal armed groups but he left it when there is a serious need for him.

Some political analyzers believe the province fall to Taliban based on a deal. If this is true, who should be held responsible for? But lawmakers want local officials of Kundoz province be dragged to judiciary.

Some lawmakers in the Upper House of the Parliament – Meshrano Jirga even called for death sentence for key officials of this province.

Taliban launched coordinated attack on Kundoz city from 3-4 sides late on Sunday night or in the wee hours of Monday and by evening they took control of several parts of the city.

Security forces backed by US air support have launched a large-scale operation to retake the city from Taliban.
