Herat PC member detained over kidnapping charges

Aug 08, 2016 - 19:10

HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) officials on Monday arrested a Provincial Council (PC) member over his alleged involvement in kidnapping incidents in western Herat province, an official said.

Wishing anonymity, the NDS official said PC member Mohammad Askar Anwari was arrested over kidnapping charges. The official did not provide further details.

PC head Kamran Alizai said Anwari should be punished according to the law if the allegations against him were proved. “We are against terrorists and kidnappers,” he said.

He said the NDS should have written a formal letter to the PC before arresting Anwari.

Anwari was detained after the urban court sentenced 13 kidnappers to death in Herat.
