Nearly four months after the deadly attack on Kabul University, local officials in Nangarhar province say the National Directorate of Security (NDS) forces have arrested another mastermind of the attack, who was also in contact with the IS-K group.
ZiaulHaq Amarkhail, the governor of Nangarhar, tweeted today that Hazrat Ali, known as Abu Saeed Azam, was arrested along with two other suspects as a result of a special operation of NDS operatives.
Amarkhail added that these people were arrested last night in Achin district of Nangarhar.
According to him, Hazrat Ali, who also planned the attack on Kabul University, had contacts with IS-K leaders, even with members of the group in Iraq, Syria and Belgium.
Previously, the NDS officials announced that five masterminds of the attack on Kabul University had been arrested in separate operations.
