Kabul: At least one kidnapper was killed and four arrested after intelligence personnel of the Afghan caretaker government busted a group of criminals on the western outskirts of Kabul, the government confirmed on Monday February 28.

“The Kabul department of General Directorate of Intelligence (GDI) rescued Abdul Ghafar from the kidnappers in Qargha area of Paghman district in a special operation on Monday,” the government said in a statement, Xinhua news agency reported.

The statement came as security forces arrested nine kidnappers, six Islamic State (IS) militants and 35 robbers, and seized a huge amount of weapons and ammunition in clearance operations in Kabul and surrounding provinces since Friday, according to government sources.

The Taliban-run administration has vowed to crack down on criminals to ensure law and order in war-torn Afghanistan.
