AFGHANISTAN: The Afghan National Security and Defense Forces A (ANSDF) have arrested two Pakistani women as they were transferring classified documents to the loyalists of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria ( ISIS) terrorist group.
The two women were arrested from the vicinity of eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan where the loyalists of the terror group are active in a number of its districts.
The provincial government’s media office said the women were detained in the vicinity of Kot district, an area which hs been a stronghold of the terrorist group since they launched their operations in Afghanistan.
According to the provincial officials, the documents seized from the two women included information on how to make explosive devices and other weapons.
The source further added that the two women are in custody of the security personnel and an investigation is underway in this regard.
The loyalists of the terror group continue to maintain presence and attempt to expand foothold in this province despite they have been hardly suppressed in Afghan and US forces raids.
The detention of the two women further strengthens claims by Afghan officials regarding the role of Pakistan security agencies in supporting the militant groups in Afghanistan.
The Afghan officials have long been criticising Pakistan for supporting the Afghan militants by providing sanctuaries to them inside their soil from where they plan and coordinate attacks in Afghanistan. -KP
