Gen. Murad rejects reports on his dismissal by president Ghani

Afghan Senior deputy interior minister for security affairs, General Murad Ali Murad has rejected various reports about his dismissal by president Ghani over lack of security measures that led to Kabul deadly attack.

Gen. Murad said the dismissal and shifting of the top Generals by the President of the country is a normal procedure.

However, he said he has not yet received any decree from the Presidential Palace regarding his dismissal or transfer to another post.

The Afghan government earlier had also rejected reports regarding the dismissal of General Murad Ali Murad as the deputy interior minister for security.

Deputy presidential spokesperson Shah Hussain Muratazai said reports regarding the dismissal of Gen. Murad are not true.

Another deputy presidential spokesperson Durani Waziri also rejected the reports and said the rumors regarding the dismissal of Gen. Murad are baseless.

This comes as reports emerged earlier suggesting that Gen. Murad has been dismissed amid deteriorating security situation across the country including capital Kabul, according to Khaama.

According to reports, the head of the security guards of the presidential palace Akhtar Ibrahimi has appointed as the successor of Gen. Murad.

Rumors regarding the dismissal of Gen. Murad emerged a day after a suicide bomber targeted a voter registration compound in west of Kabul as part of the relentless attempts by the militants to carry out large scale attacks in the key cities.
