JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Police on Monday arrested a man accused of sexually assaulting a six-year-old boy in eastern Nangarhar province.

The boy is being treated at the civil hospital in Jalalabad after he was sexually abused by a guard of a local influential Azimullah in the 6th police district of Jalalabad city, the provincial capital, on Sunday.

The victim’s father, Bilal (nor real name) claimed Azimullah had threatened them against complaining to the police.

He claimed they were not only threatened to death, but his wife was also insulted and beaten at the zonal hospital.

The father warned if the government did not arrest the accused, he would commit self immolation along with his wife and children in front of the governor’s house.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that police had arrested the accused named Pahalwan and he would be referred to the judicial organs. He confirmed Pahalwan was a bodyguard of Azimullah.
