RASC News Agency: Reports from Baghlan province indicate that a former government soldier has been apprehended by the Taliban group’s intelligence unit. According to local sources announced on Wednesday, November 22nd, this ex-military personnel was arrested 46 days ago and subsequently taken to an undisclosed location. The incident took place in the city of Pul-e-Khumri, in the Dow Saraka area. Despite the passage of over a month, there is still no information available regarding the fate of the detainee.
The individual in question has been identified as Sardar Mohammad, who served as a soldier in the previous government’s army. Following the Taliban’s takeover, he resorted to driving a taxi to make a living. Sardar Mohammad is from the Khost Farang district of Baghlan province and resides with his family in Pul-e-Khumri city. His family asserts that his arrest by the Taliban was unjust and without any valid reason. However, the Taliban group in Baghlan province has yet to comment on this particular incident.
It is worth noting that despite the leader of the Taliban group announcing a general amnesty, the group has continued to detain, torture, and, in many cases, execute soldiers from the previous government across various provinces.
In a recent incident, the Taliban arrested two soldiers from the previous government, who were originally from the Rostaq district of Takhar province, after crossing the border from Iran into Nimroz province. Since the Taliban’s rise to power, a significant number of former government soldiers have fled the country and sought refuge in neighboring nations due to concerns over the group’s actions and economic hardships.
