AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: The National Directorate of Security (NDS) has said that its operatives have arrested four kidnappers, who killed a hostage in northern Balkh province.

A statement issued by the NDS here on Tuesday stated that its operatives arrested four kidnapers in Mazar-e-Sharif capital of Balkh province.

The kidnappers were identified as Mohammad Gul, Abdul Jabbar, Mohammad Ashraf and Abdul Hakim who had recently kidnapped Mohammad Dawoud S/O Abdul Rahman in the jurisdiction of Dehdadi district, the statement added. The kidnappers had sought the boy’s father for Afs10 million as ransom.

However, the father of the ill-fated boy could not manage to pay that much ransom. Nonetheless, the kidnappers killed his son and buried him in Qutan Shah Mahmood village of Chahar Kint district.

Dawoud’s body was later recovered from Qutan Shah Mahmod village after the NDS interrogated the kidnappers.

It is worth mentioning that the spy agency has recently rescued eight-year old Muhammad Ibrahim who was kidnapped from 17th police jurisdiction in Kabul city. A kidnapper was also detained.
