KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Talibaninfo-icon commanders repeatedly gang-raped a teenage boy before forcing him to carry out a suicide attack, the spy service claimed on Sunday. However, Taliban denied the allegation.

“Sexual abuse of teenagers before sending them for suicide bombings has become common in Taliban ranks and the Haqani Network,” the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said in a statement.

It added Bilal, 16, had revealed during investigations that he was gap-rapped many times by three Taliban commanders and then forced to carrying out a suicide bombing.

It said the boy had been trained how to detonate explosives attached to his body and sent to attack the police headquarters in the Bagrami district.

The NDS statement urged parents and family elders not allow their children to join militants and become suicide bombers.

Taliban strongly rejected security forces statement and allegation.

Zabihullah Mujahid, Taliban spokesperson, said in a statement security forces started spreading such allegations after Taliban increased attacks on them.

Zabihullah also called the video fake which the security forces shared of a would-be young suicide bomber saying he was raped by Taliban commanders before carrying out suicide attack
