A number of gunmen who were pretending to be the Taliban fighters stabbed a moneychanger in Police District eight of Kabul city.
Deputy Head of Afghanistan’s chamber of commerce Khan Jan Alokozai said that the money changer was followed from the money changing market and was then stopped and stabbed wounded.
Khan Jan Alokozai said that the moneychanger had given the bag of money to one of his friends and was carrying an empty bag when stopped by the gunmen.
“Since the businessmen have been disarmed and their armored cars have been taken, they are subject to armed thievery.” He addressed the businessmen to be more cautious while carrying money in Kabul city.
The deputy Head said officials of the chamber will discuss the issue with the Taliban and will ask them to provide the businessmen with weapons and armored vehicles.
Though the Taliban have decreased the number of thieves by arresting nearly two thousand in the past two weeks, people across the country are asking for special uniforms for their fighters.
