BALKH, Afghanistan – General Command of Police Special Units (GCPSU) nabbed at least two suspects over arms trafficking, during an operation in Mazar-e-Sharif city of Balkh province in north Afghanistan, said the Ministry of Interior Affairs in a statement Sunday.

“GCPSU have arrested two people in connection to the smuggling of weapons in Mazar-e-Sharif City of Balkh province,” said the MoIA in a tweet.

Officials did not provide further details on the identity of the suspects but said their cases have been referred to “related departments” for investigation.

Meanwhile, the authorities seized a number of arms and ammunition, including some military equipment, during the operation.  

 “The seized weapons contained four AK-47 rifles, one pistol & some amount of ammunition & military equipment,” the tweet added.

Arrest came at a time local security departments throughout Afghanistan are given “shoot” order following concerns over growing insecurities and carrying undocumented weapons by locals if the suspects resist to surrender.
