(Last Updated On: February 13, 2018)

The Interior Ministry plans to retire a number of police generals in first quarter of new solar year, as a way of giving younger officers an incentive to advance up the ranks.

Confirming to Ariana News, the Interior Ministry Spokesman, Najib Danish said that the move will bring reforms and shape police personnel with young officers.  

However, some former military officers are not optimistic about the plan, saying it will weaken the moral of security forces.

This comes more than a week after the Defense Ministry has retired 162 high-ranking military officers.

The plan to retire old military officers, earlier, has sparked strong criticism of some influential political figures.

Ousted governor Atta Mohammad Noor has asserted that the retirement plan of military officers is part of the move to sideline Jihadi generals from the national armed forces.
