AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: At least 10 prisoners—not involved in terrorist activities—have been released from Maidan Wardak jail, said officials on Tuesday.
The decision was taken after a presidential decree, which also reduced imprisonment of several other inmates in the prison. The decree was issued on the eve of the victory of Mujahideen.
The released individuals were detained on charges of involvement in traffic accidents and personal enmity around three years back.
Acting governor of the province, Zakir Hussain Sultani, called on the released prisoners not to commit crimes in the future.
There are 260 inmates including six children and 11 women in Maidan Wardak prison.
