AIBAK (Pajhwok): Hundreds of residents of northern Samangan province on Saturday protested against soaring crimes and demanded concrete measures against outlaws.

The protesters said 21-year-old Abdul Manan was beheaded last night in the Sarghani area of Aibak and 30-year-old Roohullah was shot dead in Takht-i-Rustam area by unknown individuals.

On behalf of the protestors, Haji Najibullah Khurami said police had failed to maintain security in the city.

Killings, armed robberies and other crimes had increased in the city recently, he alleged, claiming outlaws roamed freely.

Acting deputy governor Sifatullah Samangani, addressing the protestors, asked police to immediately arrest the killers of Abdul Manan and Roohullah.

He also ordered security officials to arrest the individuals harassing the people.
