JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Intelligence operatives arrested an 11-member group of kidnappers in eastern Nangarhar province, the governor said on Thursday.

Governor Gulab Mangal in the presence of NDS provincial director told reporters here that the arrested gang was ‘dangerous’.

He said the group had confessed to kidnapping a child and a man. “They confessed to staging many kidnappings, including a nine-year-old boy recently. They took ransom money from the child’s family and killed him.”

The governor said Aminullah was another child the group had kidnapped but he was rescued by NDS personnel.

He said the group led by Khan Zaman had been involved in kidnappings in the province and particularly Jalalabad and in two more cases in Koshkak area of Sararud locality.

Mangal acknowledged security forces lacked some abilities but assured the forces would keep security at the cost of their lives.
