KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Police captured an explosives-laden vehicle and four militants late on Sunday night, preventing a potential terrorist attack, a senior security official said on Monday.

The explosives-laden car was intercepted east of Kabul City and four men sitting in the vehicle were detained, Kabul police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Rahman Rahimi told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Magnetic bombs, weapons and food supplement tablets were also recovered from the four men, who wanted to transfer the explosives to Kabul for terrorist activities, he said.

The police chief said another 212 suspected criminals had been arrested from different areas of Kabul on charges ranging from murder, kidnapping, carrying weapons to drug smuggling.

He said after investigations, dossiers detailing crimes of some of the detainees had been sent to the judicial department for further proceedings.

Rahimi also said around 180 people were taken into custody by police for “staring at womeninfo-icon”, but they were swiftly released after necessary advice.
