KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): The Appellate Court in northern Kunduz province has detained three provincial agricultureinfo-icon department officials over alleged corruption.

Appellate court prosecutor Mohammad Arif Mubashir told Pajhwok Afghan News that they started investigation into alleged corruption in the Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Department of Kunduz as per directives of the Attorney General Office.

“We finally found six managers involved in embezzling projects’ money and forgery,” he said.

He said three of the suspects had been detained and the remaining three had managed to flee. Mubashir asked detective organs to capture the officials at large.

The Kunduz agriculture, livestock and irrigation department refused to comment about the case.
