CHAGHCHIRAN (PANinfo-icon): The director of agricultureinfo-icon and livestock for western Ghorinfo-icon province has been arrested over alleged embezzlement of funds and misuse of authority, an official said on Monday.

Ghor Court of Appeals head Gul Ahmad Haidari told Pajhwok Afghan News that Agriculture Director Fariduddin Abid had been detained by provincial prosecutors due in connection with several cases of fund misappropriation.

With the case against the director under investigation by the attorney office, the official would not go into details.
