Human Sultani, who represents eastern Ghazni province in the Afghan parliament, humiliated an Afghan police officer by slapping him in front of the Pakistani embassy on Sunday.
Sediq Sediqi, spokesman for the Interior Ministry of Afghanistan said, Afghan police forces are serving the nation in a critical situation, and the police officers should be praised by Afghan officials and citizens of the country.
Sediqi said, the interior ministry of Afghanistan will strictly follow the humiliation of police officer by Human Sultani, and will take formal actions against her through the concerned departments.
He said a formal letter was sent to the ministry of parliamentary affairs, so that the issue should be shared with the Afghan parliament.
According to Sediqi, the interior ministry has probed the issue and it has been revealed that the police officer was not guilty.
In the meantime, the Afghan Attorney General Office announced Monday that legal actions will be taken against Huma Sultani, if they receive formal instructions from the interior ministry and Afghan parliament.
Mohammad Basir Azizi, spokesman for the Attorney General Office of Afghanistan said, humiliation and beating of police officer is a crime as per the law of the country.
Mr. Azizi urged the interior ministry and Afghan parliament to provide documents and evidences in this regard so that they can take legal actions against her.
The humiliation of police officers by government officials and parliament members is not rare in the country. A police officer was beaten by the security guards of lawmaker Haji Zahir Qadir in Wazir Akbar khan area of capital Kabul last year.
Another police officer was also beaten by security guards of lawmaker Ahmad Behzad in capital Kabul, which resulted into hospitalization of the police officer.
Meanwhile, the administrative delegation of the Afghan parliament also condemned the humiliation of the police officer by Human Sultani, and said her behavior with the police officer was not appropriate.
