According to reports, the head of the security guards of the presidential palace Akhtar Ibrahimi has been appointed as the successor of Gen. Murad.
However, the Afghan government has not officially commented in this regard so far.
This comes as reports emerged earlier suggesting that Gen. Murad has been dismissed after a suicide bomber targeted at a voter registration compound in west of Kabul.
Gen. Morad is a four-star general who was born in Lal Sarjangal district of Ghor province.
He served the Afghan National Army in various sectors after the fall of Taliban regime in 2001.
