The Taliban published a video indicating that the group found $6.5 million in cash from Amrullah Saleh’s house in Panjshir province.
The cash was reportedly obtained during an operation.
Shahab Lewal, a member of the Taliban's Cultural Commission, said: “Today our Mujahideen got $6.5 million and 18 gold coins from Amrullah Saleh’s house. We will return the money to the Ministry of Finance.”
Amrullah Saleh, the former vice president, has not yet commented on the video.
In a separate video posted on social media, meanwhile, a man wearing a military uniform was shot and killed by Taliban fighters. The incident is said to have occurred in Panjshir province.
Hashmatullah, a Panjshir resident, said: “ The condition of the people is worrying in Panjshir. The incident must be investigated.”
Naqibullah, a Panjshir resident, said: “This should be prosecuted. The international organizations and human rights groups should assess the incident. It is a crime.”
Taliban officials said the incident will be investigated. Abdulhaq Emad said: “Such videos and photos are published against the Taliban. The Taliban has proved many times that these videos are from previous events or even from other countries.
The chief of the Afghanistan Human rights Commission previously asked the Taliban to allow investigations into civilian causalities in Panjshir.
