Hundreds of people attended a gathering in western Herat province on Sunday and asked the government to arrest a notorious criminal, Hakimullah Shujai.
The gathering in Herat City asked the government to arrest Shujai and bring him to justice.
Mohammad Daud Dawar, who leads the group in Herat, said Shujai should be arrested and punished.
He said they had shown President Hamid Karzai photos of those killed by Shujai, but the wanted man continued to be on the loose.
The gathering announced if the government did not arrest Shujai over the next 10 days, they would launch nationwide protests.
The Ministry of Interior says it has directed the police to arrest Shujai.
Participants of the gathering also claimed police had once arrested Shujai, but released him on the directives of one of Karzai’s deputies.
