The National Directorate of Security (NDS) said the hostage was identified as Rafiullah son of Faqir Mohammad who was abducted two kidnappers from the vicinity of Balkh province.

NDS further added that the hostage was released during an operation and was safely returned to his family.

This comes as the Afghan intelligence said last week at least 21 individuals involved in major kidnappings in capital Kabul.

Kidnap for ransom cases still continue in parts of the country despite the Afghan intelligence nabbed two MAFIA bosses involved in major kidnappings who were later executed by the government.

The two top MAFIA leaders, Habib Istalif and Raees Khudaidad, were executed late in 2014 and early in 2015 after they were arrested by intelligence operatives.

The NDS operatives released a hostage during an operation conducted in central Wardak province of Afghanistan late in the month of February.

The operation was conducted as the kidnappers were demanding a huge ransom of $1 million from the family of the hostage, forcing the intelligence operatives to intervene and secure his release.
