SAR-I-PUL (Pajhowk): Security forces have freed six border police after being abducted by Talibaninfo-icon militants a week as a result of an operation in northern Sar-i-Pul province, the governor said on Monday.

Mohammad Zahir Wahdat told a press conference here that the operation was carried out on Sunday night to secure the release of the police officers in Hoz Haji Mohammad Omar locality north of Sar-i-Pul city, the provincial capital.

He said the operation took place when militants wanted to shift the police personnel to Kohistanat district where they controlled many areas.

He said six Taliban militants were killed and nine others were wounded during a clash with security forces who confiscated nine motorbikes. The security forces suffered no casualties.

Abdul Rahman, one of the released policemen, said “Taliban tortured and abused us and did not give as suitable food”.

The Taliban have not yet commented about the incident.
