The Taliban’s security command in Kabul in a press conference on Wednesday revealed a shocking record of 156 murders in the capital city of Kabul during the last year. Along with the murders, 553 cases of theft and 1,920 cases of other criminal activities, such as suicide, extortion, car and motorcycle theft, sexual assault, drug trafficking, fraud and bribery were also registered. 

The Taliban command’s spokesman Khalid Zadran announced the arrest of 232 people in connection with the murders, 901 in connection with theft cases, and 1,836 in connection with other criminal activities.
