Explosives-laden vehicle coming from Pakistan seized in Kandahar

AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: An explosives-laden tractor, coming from Pakistan, was seized by security forces in southern Kandahar province, said officials on Tuesday.

The police headquarters in Kandahar said the vehicle was seized in Regi area of Dand district the other day which had arrived from Pakistan.

Security officials said there were 52 different types of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), 20 kilogram of other explosive materials and six bundles of wire that is used in explosions.

Although it is not clear yet as who was the possible target of these explosives was but Taliban suicide cell on the other side of the border plans to assassinate Kandahar police chief, General Abdul Raziq.

The NDS said earlier on Monday that they have arrested a suicide attacker who was assigned by Taliban suicide cell leader Jabbar Agha from the other side of the border to kill Gen. Abdul Raziq.

The picture of the suicide attacker was published by the NDS and the suicide attacker was identified as Rahmatullah a resident of Kandahar who had received terrorist training on other side of the Durand Line in Chaman area of Pakistan, bordering Kandahar.

Taliban have tried numerous times to assassinate Raziq but he has escaped.

Raziq is one of the commanders of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) who supports the ‘kill terrorist on the spot’ idea.

He has repeatedly said that the actual terrorist hideouts and centers are in Pakistan and they should be targeted there.

He has even crossed the Durand Line to chase terrorists.
