JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Intelligence operatives have detained 17 armed criminals, including Talibaninfo-icon and Daesh members during the past one week in eastern Nangarhar province, the governor said Tuesday.

Governor Shah Mehmood Miakhel told a press conference here that National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel had arrested 17 persons, including eight Daesh or so-called Islamic State (IS) rebels and three Taliban militants.

He said the detainees included three armed robbers accused of kidnapping people in military uniform for ransom. He said 20 districts of the province were under security forces’ control and operations were underway to wrest back the remaining two districts.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gen. Nazar Ali Wahidi, Nangarhar intelligence director, told Pajhwok that militants had reduced their activities to a few areas, thanks to people’s cooperation with security forces.
