JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Two imposters, who robbed passengers in border police uniform, have been arrested in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Saturday.

Attuallah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told a press conference that the National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel arrested the two men while searching a vehicle in Tamirat area of Behsud district on Friday night.

He said a car and a weapon were recovered from the two who had confessed to their crime. They were currently being under investigation with NDS officials.

The two had been fleecing people under various pretexts. They would set up a check post and wear border police uniform to ask drivers for money.

The duo had installed photos of national leaders on their car to avoid being suspected, Khogyani said.

The governor’s spokesman said intelligence officials had also arrested an active member of the Islamic State group.

He said cases of the detainees were currently under review with the NDS and they would be referred to the attorney’s office soon.

A video of the detained persons was shown to the media persons, in which the detainees are confessing to their crimes.
