Polio Vaccinators’ assassins arrested in Kunduz province

Security officials in the northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan said that they have arrested four people accused of killing four vaccinators and two Taliban affiliates in the province.

Assassins gunned down seven six polio vaccinators on the same day in the province two weeks ago, among them four boys and three girls.

Intelligence officials of Kunduz province said that the four arrested are part of the bond that was sent from Panjshir province to Kunduz to carry out assassinations.

Those arrested have confessed the killings and added that they were paid 30,000 Afghani ($352) for each killing by a local commander known as “Markhor”.

Head of intelligence directorate of Kunduz province Najibullah Haroon said that efforts are underway to arrest the complete bond and added that no one will be allowed to exploit the security of the residents of Kunduz province.

Though vaccinators were shot down across Afghanistan during the previous government, this is the first time that the deadly incident is reported after the Taliban takeover.

It is worth mentioning that, it is the first time the polio vaccination campaign was implanted across Afghanistan.
