3 kidnappers arrested by intelligence agents in Nangarhar

May 25, 2016 - 11:53

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A group of three kidnappers has been busted in eastern Nangarhar province, the governor’s spokesman said on Wednesday.

Attaullah Khogyani told Pajhwok Afghan News the kidnappers -- residents of Khogyani and Sherzad districts -- were detained during an operation in Surkhrod on Tuesday.

The kidnappers have reportedly confessed to being involved in many cases in the province. Intelligence agents also held a militant in the operation, he said.

A civil societyinfo-icon activist, Navid Shinwari, said kidnapping cases had considerably increased in recent months despite occasional raids and arrests.

“Based on my information, hundreds of people are arrested and their families are still trying to free them,” he said, adding most of the kidnap victims were children and teenagers.

A week ago, a number of kidnappers from other provinces of the country were detained by security forces in Nangarhar.
