A source identified the principal as Baba Gul who was detained and transferred to an unknown place by the Taliban on Thursday night.

The Taliban has recently ramped up arrests of civilians, activists, advocates, former government officials and security forces. The group usually does not comment or provide information on the reasons behind such arbitrary arrests.

In another latest case, a former army soldier was arrested for a second time by the Taliban forces in the same district of Parwan last Friday.
