By Jawid Zeyaratjaye

Ghor governor Ghulam Nasir Khaze on Tuesday told TOLOnews in a phone call that a Daesh commander, who was arrested by security forces two months ago, has been released by the National Directorate of Security (NDS).

The governor said the Daesh commander is behind the killing of dozens of civilians in Ghor and the stoning of Rukhshana, a girl who was accused of adultery by a kangaroo court in the province last year.

At least two months ago, Abdulhai Khatibi, spokesman for Ghor governor, told reporters that the Daesh militant, Saadyar, visited Feroz Koh, the capital city of Ghor, when he was arrested by security forces.

The spokesman said at that time that Saadyar was the main perpetrator of Rukhshana’s stoning and was behind the killing of 32 civilians. He was also reportedly in charge of a Daesh kangaroo court in Ghalmin area in the province.

“Mawlawi Saadyar, a Daesh commander, had come to hospital for treatment and was arrested by security forces. Saadyar had issued the order of Rukhshana’s stoning and also he is accused of the group killing of Ghor people,” Khatibi told media after the arrest of the Daesh commander.
