Two militants were killed and another half a dozen arrested during an overnight commando forces’ operation in the Nijrab district of central Kapisa province, police said on Sunday.
The operation was carried out last night in the district’s Feroz area, police chief of neighbouring Parwan province, Col. Abdul Karim Faiq, told Pajhwok Afghan News.
The detainees included a local insurgent leader and they had been involved a recent attack on the district headquarters, the official said.
Shahpur, a resident of the area, said the insurgents had gathered at a house which came under attack from security forces. He confirmed two militants had been killed and six others captured alive during the raid.
