Despite announcing a “general amnesty” in the days after taking control of Kabul, the Taliban has carried hundreds of arrests, torture and extrajudicial killings of former members of the Afghan military and government employees.
On Monday, the Taliban detained a former Afghan army personnel in Kabul.
According to sources, Mohammad Islam, a native of Panjshir province, had been fired from his position in the Afghan army before the Taliban’s recapture of power.
