The Pakistani military claims that an Afghan national who was acting as the facilitator of the Afghan intelligence, National Directorate of Security (NDS), has been arrested during an operation.

“Balochistan along with Intelligence agencies conducted IBOs in Musa colony and Sangan areas. An Afghan national suspected NDS facilitator apprehended,” the Pakistani military said in a statement.

The statement further added “In Sangan FC recovered weapons and ammunition including explosives and communication equipment. In de-weaponising campaign residents of Sibbi, Talli and Dera Murad Jamali voluntarily deposited illegal weapons to FC.”

This is not the first time an Afghan national is being arrested on charges of working with the Afghan security institutions or having links with the terror groups.

On the other hand, the Afghan security institutions have also made similar claims in the past.

The Afghan intelligence said late in August that an agent of the Pakistani military intelligence, inter services intelligence (ISIS), has been arrested by the security forces in Kabul as he was planning an attack on the major Pul-e-Charkhi prison.

The Afghan intelligence, national directorate of security (NDS), said the man was detained during an operation from Kabul city.

A statement by NDS said the detained suspect has been identified as Allah Noor who is originally a resident of Quetta city of Pakistan.

The detained agent confesses in a video published by NDS saying he wanted to have a role in the attack on Pul-e-Charkhi prison.

He also admits his involvement in organizing meetings between the ISI officials and Taliban leader Mullah Hebatullah as well as Haqqani network leader Sirajuddin Haqqani network in Pakistan.
