Ringleader among 12 kidnappers held in Kabul, Parwan

Ringleader among 12 kidnappers held in Kabul, Parwan

Mar 03, 2016 - 21:11

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwk): A ringleader was among a dozen kidnappers arrested in separate raids in Kabul and central Parwan province, the spy service said on Thursday.

A statement from the National Directorate of Security identified the alleged kidnappers arrested in Kabul as Parwaiz, Zamarai, Asadullah, Tooryalai (a gas seller), Kamil and Khalil.

The six persons were detained in light of confessions made by an earlier arrested five-member kidnap gang some time ago in Kabul’s 10 police district, the statement said.

The group had been involved a series of kidnappings including the kidnapping a 14-year-old boy Aminullah, son of Qandi Shah, the statement added.

The NDSinfo-icon also said a ringleader and his five accomplices involved in kidnappings had also been arrested in Parwan province. The statement identified the ringleader as Mohammad Afzal aka Major General Pikar. The five other detainees included a woman.

The statement claimed 23 different arms, three vehicles, fake documents, military uniforms and blank passports had been recovered from the detainees.

These individuals had the plan to benefit from their relations with the Talibaninfo-icon’s shadow governor for Parwan in kidnapping people and carrying out other such activities.

However, the statement did not provide any date or location of the arrests in Parwan. The spy service urged the people to contact the department in case they observed any suspicious activity on 1919 hotline.
