Afghanistan Vice-President Amrullah Saleh has summoned Panjshir officials to provide clarifications about the failed attempt of Afghan Security Forces in the arrest of former Afghan Football Federation head, Kiramuddin Karim.

In a statement published on Amrullah Saleh’s official Facebook page, Saleh said that the Minister of Interior Affairs have been ordered to summon the governor of Panjshir and the police chief to provide clear details about last nights operation which was launched to arrest Keramuddin Karim, the former Football Federation head for Afghanistan.

The statement has also said that those hands behind sending Special Forces in last night’s operation should be unveiled.

Saleh has called on Panjshir residents not to back criminals such as Kiramuddin Karim.

This comes as, Afghan Security Forces launched an operation on Sangana village of Panjshir province for the purpose of arresting Keramuddin Karim, the ex Football Federation official who is accused of sexual harassment.

Panjshir residents blame the government for playing a double standard game in fighting corruptions and dealing with criminals. They did not allow the Forces to arrest Keramuddin.

The Ministry of Interior later announced on Monday that the operation ended with no results, the forces could not find Mr. Karim at his resident.

This comes as Keramuddin’s photos later appeared on social media showing him in Panjshir.
