KUNDUZ CITY (PANinfo-icon): A brother-in-law of Gulbadin Hekmatyar, the Hezb-i-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistaninfo-icon (HIA) chief, has been arrested in the Imaminfo-icon Sahib district of northwestern Kunduz province, an official said on Thursday.

Salahuddin Hekmatyar was detained along with a bodyguard in Gul Tepa area late on Wednesday, police spokesman Syed Sarwar Hussaini told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the two were travelling in a car that was intercepted by Afghan Local Police (ALP) personnel at a check-post. “They tried to escape by crushing to death an ALP member,” he added.

As an elderly shopkeeper tried to stop the car, Salahuddin shot the 65-year-old to death with his pistol. The ALP members chased the car and captured it in Gul Tepa, according to the police spokesman.

The district police chief, 1st Lt Amanullah Ibrahimi, said two womeninfo-icon were also travelling with Salahuddin in the car. All of them had been arrested, he said.
