JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) personnel have arrested a group of five kidnappers in eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Monday.

Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News the kidnapers were involved in many cases in Jalalabad, the provincial capital. He said the detainees had confessed to their crimes.

Meanwhile, a statement from the governor house quoted the Samiullah-led gang as saying: “We have tasked our partners in the city to follow wealthy moneychangers.”

The group leader said they were active in different districts, including on highways, kidnapping rich people from various areas.

But the residents of Nangarhar viewed the arrests as insufficient, demanding more concrete efforts to curb target killings. In the past two weeks, the NDS personnel have arrested 11 kidnappers.
