The intelligence department detained a group of thieves who were claiming to be Islamic Emirate members in an attempt to break into the houses in Kabul city.
According to the intelligence department, the detainees were arrested while they were trying to rob a house in PD 8 of Kabul city.
“Last night, we received a report that some people surrounded a house claiming to be the members of the Islamic Emirate. We made attempts (to find them) and finally around (midnight), we were able to find their location and arrest them. They had guns and vehicles and military uniforms,” said Mullah Rahmatullah, the intelligence official in charge of PD 8.
In the meantime, Islamic Emirate forces arrested several individuals on charges of misusing the name of the Islamic Emirate and perpetrating crimes against the people.
The citizens called on the Islamic Emirate to take the necessary steps to counter such criminal activities.
“The Islamic Emirate should pay more attention to this so opportunistic people don’t abuse (the situation) and don’t storm into the people’s houses,” said Mustafa, a Kabul resident.
“We want them to wear a nice uniform and prepare it in the format of the Islamic Emirate so that the people can recognize them,” said Abdul Shafi, another resident of Kabul.
Last week the Islamic Emirate said that it had formed a commission to detect and remove the unqualified people and those individuals who misuse the name of the Islamic Emirate to disturb the people.
