SHARAN (Pajhwok): Six persons travelling in a military vehicle have been detained in Zarghon Shar district of southeastern Paktika province, an official said on Thursday.

Provincial deputy police chief Lt. Col. Abdul Rauf Masoud told Pajhwok Afghan News the six people were arrested with an Afghan National Army’s ranger pickup vehicle during an operation in the district.

He said the detainees had connections with the Talibaninfo-icon. The registration number of the vehicle had been sent to the department concerned to determine as to which province and military unit it belonged to.

Masoud said security forces and civilians suffered no casualties during the operation.

The district police chief, Mohammad Aslam, said the military vehicle had been taken away by Taliban militants several days back in Giro district of southern Ghazni from ANA soldiers.

The Zarghon Shar district borders Giro district.
