KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The spy service on Saturday claimed detaining a Talibaninfo-icon-designated judge and mayor for the Darqad district of northern Takhar province.

The National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said the two senior insurgent figures had been arrested along with a dozen other suspects.

The militant leaders were identified as Maulviinfo-icon Habibur Rahman, alias Mudassir, son of Khairul Baqi, and Mullahinfo-icon Shukrullah, also known as Maulvi Shakoor.

A statement from the intelligence network said the insurgents were caught red-handed while forcibly collecting Ushr from residents of the area.

A Kalashnikov assault rifle, rockets and bullets of different kinds were recovered from the detainees, who are currently under investigation.
