21 Oct 2019 1TV News

Abdullah Abdullah's camp manager claimed on Monday that police special forces conducted a raid on the Independent Election Commission's digital center last night.

Speaking at a press conference, Ali Ahmad Osmani said that the attack was not only an attack on votes for Abdullah’s team but on democracy.

He said that security officials’ claimed that the special forces entered the facility due to security threat and coldness of weather, which he said was “unacceptable.”

Osmani called for an investigation into the incident including use of videos captured by surveillance cameras.

He, however, suggested that head of the secretariat of IEC, Habibur Rahman Nang, and Deputy Interior Minister Khushal Sadat should be suspended before any probe.

“The losing team is ignoring rules of the game, it is trying to create crisis,” Osmani said.

Interior Ministry’s spokesman Nasrat Rahimi rejected the claim as “baseless.”

He said that police remained impartial in the election.
