The mysterious killing of former National Directorate of Security (NDS) personnel continues across Afghanistan.

According to independent sources, the mysterious killing of former national security forces continues despite the general amnesty announced with the reemergence of the Taliban to power in August 2021. Under the announcement, all military personnel who served for different security entities of the previous regime were barred from being detained, tortured, or imprisoned.

Summary killings and enforced disappearances have taken place despite the Taliban’s announced amnesty for former government civilian and military officials and reassurances from the Taliban leadership that they would hold their forces accountable for violations of the amnesty order.

Recently, the dead body of Mujahid Barak was found in the Mianko mountains, provincial district 9, in Kandahar city. Mujahid Barak served in the National Directorate of Security during the former government. Mujahid’s relatives said he was killed by the Taliban, however, the local authorities in Kandahar have not yet commented on the murder. The mysterious killing of members of the former Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) in Kandahar is not unprecedented.

Meanwhile, Human Rights Watch’s research indicates that Taliban forces have killed or forcibly disappeared more than 100 former security force members in several provinces in the three months since their takeover of Kabul, the Afghan capital, on August 15. They have also targeted family members of former security force members.
