The detained individuals were paraded before media persons in Kandahar City, the provincial capital, in the presence of Governor Hayatullah Hayat and provincial intelligence chief Barkatullah Chamkani.

Governor Hayat said the detained persons wanted to carry out subversive activities during the holy month of Ramadaninfo-icon, but security forces arrested them and foiled their plans.
