HERAT CITY (PANinfo-icon): Four suspected Talibaninfo-icon insurgents have been detained in the western province of Herat, the spy agency said on Wednesday.

Three Taliban fighters, hailing from Gulran district, were collecting Oshar, a 10th part of an agricultural production, and Zakatinfo-icon from local residents, when they were caught red-handed by National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) official, the NDS said in a statement.

The detainees had confessed on their crime, saying they had been tasked with the collection by a Taliban-designated commander for the district, Maulviinfo-icon Abdul Hai, the statement said.

A rocket launcher and a Kalashnikov were also recovered from the detainees, it added.

Separately, another insurgent loyal to Maulvi Hassan, accused of planting roadside bombs and other disruptive activities in Shindand district, was detained, the statement said.
