Kunduz madrasa students undergoing ‘terrorist training’

Kunduz madrasa students undergoing ‘terrorist training’

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Local officials on Monday claimed religious students at a madrasa in Dasht-i-Archi district of northern Kudnuz province were undergoing training to carry out suicide and other terrorist attacks.

Nasruddin Nazari, the Dasht-i-Archi district chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the seminary named ‘Kokcha’ was in Shinwari area, about four kilometers from the district centre.

The students belonging to Kunduz and other provinces were receiving terrorist training from Pakistani teachers over the past two years, he said.

“I have shared the issue several times with local officials, but no action has so far taken. Two weeks ago, Afghan forces bombarded a nearby area but spared the madrasa,” Nazari said.

Kunduz Governor Asadullah Omarkhil confirmed the seminary students were undergoing training in acts of terrorism.

“The madrasa is run by a Pakistani national, Omran. Security forces received information about it last week and they would soon act against the madrasa,” he said.

He said around 300 students at the madrasa were receiving training under the watchful eyes of Maulviinfo-icon Jannat Gul, a notorious member of the Haqqani Networkinfo-icon.

A week earlier, four teenage boys, allegedly planning to carry out suicide attacks in Kunduz, were arrested by Afghan security forces.
