The loyalist of the terror group was arrested by the Afghan intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS) operatives from Nangarhar province.
The militant was among three people arrested by the NDS operatives and admitted that he received training in Kuchlak area, located near Quetta city, the provincial capital of Balochistan province.
The man admits he originally hails from the southern Zabul province of Afghanistan and was taken to Kuchlak to receive the necessary training to conduct insurgency activities under the ISIS flag.
