BAMYAN CITY (Pajhwok): The counternarcotics director and five other individuals have been arrested on moral corruption charges in central Bamyan province, officials said on Suday.

Two others including a security official were arrested for selling a Russian tank, provincial crime branch chief, Jalil Wasiq, told a press conference here.

Lt. Col. Naqibullah, Bamyan’s counternarcotics chief, and six other people accused of drinking alcohol and asking a girl from Kabulinfo-icon to dance, the official said.

He added the detainees had brought the girl -- named Fatima -- from Kabul for dancing. Cases against the detainees have been sent to the attorney office.

Wasiq said 1st Lt. Jan Ali, commander of the Kabul-Bamyan highway security unit, and one other individual involved in selling a Russian military tank had also been referred to the attorney office.

“These two individuals wanted to sell an old Russian tank after cutting it into pieces,” the crime branch head said.

Some days back, Ali Babak, a senior Bamyan police officer, and Bahman, an intelligence agent, were also detained on moral corruption charges.

Locals said that Abdul Haq, senior educationinfo-icon supervisor for Seghan district, was nabbed i a moral corruption case. However, he was released after paying 350,000 afghanis in bribe.

However, the crime branch chief promised he would investigate the issue and arrest both parties if the bribery allegation was substantiated.
