Illegal digging of natural resources in Kapisa, Afghanistan

A high level government delegation comprised of Presidential Palace and some ministries representatives have traveled to central Kapisa province to investigate the illegal excavation of natural resources, an official said. Police spokesman Mohammad Ayub Yousufzai told Pajhwok Afghan News that Chromites mine which was now in security forces control was earlier extracted by powerful individuals illegally. He said the site of natural resources was in militant control in the past. The spokesman added the purpose of visiting delegation from the centre was to investigate illegal mining in the Chromites mine. Meanwhile, local mining and petroleum officials complained some mines of precious stones were in militant control and some were being excavated by powerful individuals in unprofessional and illegal way. But Eng. Aziz, an employee of the mining department, said mines of precious stones were situated in the insecure areas of Kapisa about which the release of official comments had been barred. Earlier, the residents of locality had shared their worries over the illegal excavation of precious natural resources, but the government paid no head to the issue.
