JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A 10-member kidnapper gang has been arrested in eastern Nangarhar province, where two kidnapped persons were rescued and reunited with their families, the governor said Sunday.

Nangarhar Governor Mohammad Gulab Mangal told a news conference here that an 18-year-old youngster, Aimal, abducted about one month back in Qala-i-Akhwand area of Kama district, had been rescued from his kidnappers.

He said the teenager was set free and reunited with his family as a result of continued efforts by National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel.
