(MENAFN- Pajhwok Afghan News) (Pajhwok): Three Afghan prison officials have gone missing in the US's Colorado state and a search for them was underway on Tuesday, an official said.
A credible source told Pajhwok Afghan News the three officers of the Afghan Ministry of Interior's Detection Centers General Department had been sent to Colorado for a temporary period to undergo a training course.
'US intelligence is searching for the missing officers, but the men have probably crossed into Canada for seeking asylum', the source said.
Lt. Gen. Abdul Alim Kohistani, director of the Detection Centers General Department, said 15 officers of the department were sent to Colorado for training about two weeks ago.
He confirmed that three low-ranked officers of the department had gone missing in Colorado. 'But it is still unclear if it is a deliberate attempt to hide', he said.
