The Afghan National Police (ANP) forces thwarted at least 8 explosion plots in the city in past two weeks besides arresting around 597 people on various criminal charges.

Kabul Police Chief General Abdul Rahman Rahimi told reporters that the suspects were arrested in connection to organized crimes, including murder, robbery, smuggling of drugs, morale crimes, possession of illegal weapons, and attempts to disrupt the order of the city.

Gen. Rahimi further added that the militants had planted at least 8 Improvised Explosive Device (IED) in various parts of the city which were discovered and defused by the security forces.
