General Mohammad Ayub Salangi born in Parwan is the former Police Chief of Kabul and the current Deputy Minister for Security in the Ministry of Interior.
He has held a number of different security positions throughout Afghanistan. In late 2003 he was described as a "high-ranking Kabul garrison officer" and the "Kabul military commander".
At a meeting of security chiefs in January 2004, he was labeled the Commander of Kabul Garrison. In 2005, sometime between March 17 and March 27, he was named the Provincial Police Chief of Kandahar Province replacing Gen. Khan Mohammad Khan.
Around April 2007, reports indicate that he had been named the Police Chief of Kunduz Province. However, the following spring 2008, Kabul Police Chief Muhammad Salim Ehsas was suspended and then dismissed after militants were able to launch an assault against President Hamid Karzai during the Mujahideen's Victory Day parade.
Salangi was chosen as his replacement, and was installed on July 6, 2008. He was replaced by Gen. Abdorrahman Rahman in early February 2009, though at the transition ceremony was awarded a letter of appreciation from the Ministry of the Interior.
