    Police arrest five drug dealers in Afghanistan

    KABUL (XINHUA) – Police arrested five drug dealers in the Afghan capital of Kabul, reported the state-run Bakhtar news agency (BNA) yesterday.

    Kabul police spokesperson Khalid Zadran told BNA officers of the Kabul anti-narcotics police department have arrested five people with drugs over the last 24 hours.

    According to the news agency, the alleged smugglers were attempting to take illicit drugs including the western-made tablet K out of Kabul, and they were identified and arrested on Friday.

    Police also found a large amount of cash including local currency afghani and foreign currencies, the state-run news agency quoted Zadran as saying. On Thursday, police uncovered 24 kilogrammes of drugs and arrested one man in the western Nimroz province.

    The Taleban-run Afghan caretaker government vowed to fight poppy cultivation, illicit drugs, drug production and its trafficking until the country gets rid of the menace.
